Alachua County fugitive caught in Georgia

A fugitive wanted for a violent assault that took place in Gainesville, earlier this month, is now in custody.

52 year old, Ellison Jackson, was identified as the suspect in the severe beating of a woman on December 4th.

The woman suffered serious injuries, requiring over thirty staples for wounds to her head, as well as surgery, and over forty stitches to her hands.

A partnership with the Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, helped catch Jackson in Grady County, Georgia.

Jackson has already served eleven prison sentences.
