Man charged in attack

September 27, 2005

Albany - 25-year old Carey Leconte Simmons of Leesburg was arrested Sunday and charged with attacking 20-year old Bobby Cox with a Cinder block.

Police say Cox was hit over the head and was in a coma for more than a month. He also suffered brain damage from the attack.

Investigator Scott Mullen says, "The extent of the injury for the victim and his family and the brutal way that this guy was attacked, for this person, not to get away, feels good, to finally close the case, for the victim." Simmons is in the Dougherty County jail.
