ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany volunteer beaten and robbed while building a wheelchair ramp is upset his accused attacker may be released from jail.

Twenty-four year old Clarence Calloway also known as "Big C" was granted an $18,100 bond Monday, although he remains in the Dougherty County Jail. He's charged with aggravated assault, accused of beating Enoch Raines with a metal pipe April 17th.

Raines and his wife were grateful the community gave police tips that led to Calloway's arrest. They worry future tipsters might think twice if they think suspects will be released on bond. Raines also worries Calloway might run and not show up for court.

"I felt like my word fell on deaf ears. There wasn't anything more I could do except disagree," said Enoch Raines, the crime victim.

Raines suffered a fractured wrist and fractured eye socket, and hasn't been able to work since the attack. His medical expenses total more than $50,000 and says an $18,000 bond doesn't compare.
