Two women have been charged over a cowardly attack on an elderly man at Chester Hill in Sydney's west yesterday morning.
86 year old Frank Carlino was lured into a carpark, about 9.45am, by a woman allegedly on the premise of getting a lift home having just visited the bank.
Instead a man can been seen on CCTV footage lurking in the background before he punches Mr Carlino from behind with the pensioner falling to the ground where the man and woman pounce, robbing him of cash.
When the Grill Team heard about the attack they were very distraught about the disgusting attack.
And with that we the boys had a chat about what they could do for Frank Carlino.
"Me and the boys just had a chat here in the studio, and look if any of Frank Carlino's family are listening or they know Frank, we're going to give him...back into his back pocket what he lost, this bloke didn't deserve that," explained MG.
The boys said that they were willing to pay Frank back everything he lost plus a little more and put a call out to anyone who was willing to give Mr Carlino a little helping hand in his time of need.
The response was absolutely overwhelming with an outpouring of offers to Mr Carlino. More details to come.
