James Tulley, Eric Frein

This is James Tully. Many people say he looks like the wanted accused cop-killer, Eric Frein.

James has made this five 5 mile trek to and from work for about a year now.

But now he’s drawing some unwanted attention from police… looking for alleged cop killer Eric Frein.

“Because I’m walking and I’m carrying a bookbag, and for some reason people seem to think I’m the one they’re looking for.”

Tully says he was ambushed Friday night on his way home from work – just after midnight.

“Driver jumps out, yelling to get down on the ground, has his rifle pointed at my head. Now I’m doing my best to comply with him, he kept screaming at me wanting to know what my name is.”

Tully says a visit to the hospital revealed he had bruised ribs from the incident.

Now people want to help him get to work safely.

Someone even created a GoFundMe page for James to help him get to work safely. The GoFundMe page has reached over $10,000, more than 4 times the set amount.
