JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Alfronika Williams said she feared for her life when a man attacked her and her boyfriend at her home.
Williams said Kenneth Dozier showed up at her front door late at night offering to cut her grass. When she refused, she said Dozier got angry and doused her with gasoline.
"His intentions were to kill us," Williams said. "As I grabbed for the gas can, he cut me in the face."
Williams said Dozier pulled out a pocket knife, and Williams' live-in boyfriend, Chris Derby, tried to help her.
Authorities said Dozier stabbed Derby three times, puncturing his lung.
"When I saw Chris bleeding, I got scared because I have no family," Williams said. "Chris is all we have. I didn't want him to be hurt."
Williams' said her 13-year-old daughter was home during the attack. Williams said she and Derby fought Dozier off to protect her daughter.
"It was her I was worried about, being without me," Williams said. "All it took was for that knife to be a lighter and we would have been gone."
Dozier was arrested, and according to police, he told them, "It's a good thing you are taking me to jail. You saved a lot of lives tonight. But I will get out. You can't keep me."
"He'll come back for more. He'll come back for more," Williams said.
Dozier is next scheduled in court in May.

How completely random and horrifying. It doesn't sound like they even knew this guy. I do not open my front door, ever. Anybody who needs to get into my house has a key. You just never know who is going to be on the other side.

Oh my, thank goodness they were able to fight him off. Prayers for this family. I can't imagine the fear that will resonate with them.
