Police Recover Gun Following Assault at Local Apartment Complex

Franklin, TN – Franklin Police were called to a Moores Court apartment last night shortly before 10:00 pm after a suspect reportedly held a gun on three men in the parking lot. The victims, all of Williamson County were in the parking lot when 34-year-old Scott Sisk was arriving home. Sisk reportedly yelled at the three as he drove by. Moments later, Sisk approached the men on foot and taunted the three for several minutes while holding them at gunpoint. The victims were able to provide a detailed description of Sisk and his vehicle to officers who located him in his nearby apartment.

Detectives secured a search warrant for Sisk’s apartment and vehicle, recovering a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun, along with anabolic steroids and several syringes. Sisk, who has a violent criminal history, was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault, Simple Possession of Schedule III, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Because a previously filed order of protection prohibited him from possession a weapon, Sisk was also charged with Violation of an Order of Protection. He is free on a $12,000 bond and scheduled to be in court at 2:00 pm on 12/31/2009. The victims did not know Sisk prior to the assault.
