Officer Ricardo "Chip" Castillo was critically injured on January 11th while responding to a call about a man wielding a large butcher knife just outside of the restaurant Mango's.
While attempting to place the suspect into custody, Officer Castillo sustained severe cuts to his left arm and leg, resulting in significant blood loss and serious nerve damage. Thankfully, he is now in recovery, but he still has a long way to go before he can return to work.
In addition to the several medical bills, Officer Castillo and his girlfriend have a 9-month old son and are expecting a baby girl in 2 months. Unfortunately, Officer Castillo's girlfriend has to take time off of work to take care of him, their son, and eventually their new daughter.
