2nd suspect charged in July beating of East Toledo man

Toledo police arrested and charged a second man with felonious assault in the 2002 beating of David Dusseau in his East Toledo home, authorities said.

Kevin Clapsaddle, 22, of 470 Parker Ave. was arraigned yesterday in Toledo Municipal Court. He was released on his own recognizance, but ordered to have no contact with the victim.

Mr. Clapsaddle was charged in the severe beating of Mr. Dusseau, 51, in his home at 440 Raymer Blvd. on July 8.

A witness who lived at the Raymer address told police he came from an upstairs bedroom and saw Mr. Dusseau on the couch with blood on him, authorities said.

Authorities believe he was hit in the head several times with a pipe.

The left side of Mr. Dusseau's body is paralyzed and he lost his right eye as a result of injuries from the beating.

Raymond Cox, 22, was indicted by the Lucas County grand jury Nov. 15 on one count of felonious assault in the beating of Mr. Dusseau.

He also was indicted on two counts of murder in the deaths of Theodore Goodacre, 53, and Reginald Darnell Jones, 37.

Cox is serving nine years in prison at the Allen Correctional Institution in Lima, Ohio, for a 2002 involuntary manslaughter conviction in the death of Craig Coulter, 41, of 623 1/2 Platt St.
