ALBANY, Ga. -- Carol Dozier, 79, believes her attacker should get life in prison for the brutal beating he gave her.

Dozier offered the assessment in a telephone interview Tuesday following the arrest of 42-year-old Lucious Gene Sutton Jr. in the assault.

Dozier answered her doorbell Friday at her Lynwood Lane home and was met by a fist to her face at the beginning of a brutal attack by Sutton, according to Albany Police Department reports.

Sutton faces aggravated assault charges for attacking Dozier, beating her in the face and knocking her down, said Phyllis Banks, police spokeswoman. In addition, he has been charged with burglary and motor vehicle theft, she said.

"We had an anonymous tip that led us to Sutton," Banks said. "That and a surveillance tape from the South Slappey Post Office and the interviews with him at the LEC (Law Enforcement Center) led to the charges against him."

At his first appearance in court Tuesday Sutton was denied bail, said a Dougherty County Jail spokeswoman.

According to police reports, after Sutton beat Dozier, he rummaged in her purse, stole money and the keys to her 2012 Honda Accord. The Honda was found abandoned on the 1300 block of Colquitt Avenue by police.

Sutton has a history of violent crimes including aggravated assault, aggravated battery and possession of a firearm by a felon that stretch back years, court records stated. He was released April 2 from the Albany Transitional Center after a nine-year sentence in prison for a violent robbery, a center spokesman said.

He's well beyond his two strikes and your out. Certainly the prosecutor's office will pursue his incarceration for the remainder of his life. Too bad, Little John and the boys were planning to meet him in the forest.

this worthless thug has proved many times that he is a menace to society...we need to expand the death penalty to include animals like him....and...those responsible for letting him out of jail need to serve prison time.....

A big "thank you" to the APD and others who helped with this creep's arrest.

This piece of trash had just been released not long ago, and a few years ago he had attacked a couple who was cleaning up a business. This is proof that their time in jail or prison does not teach them any lessons. I know this doesn't apply to everybody, but obviously in this case it was like letting a wild animal loose back out to the jungle.

At 42 years of age you would think he would be tired of going to prison. However, judging from the article, prison is the only life he knows. Well, this incident "should" put him away for the rest of his life.
