Bishopville Man Accused Of Assaulting Girlfriend

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER CO., Md. - A Bishopville man is behind bars, after he apparently assaulted a woman and threatened her life.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office says on February 19th, they were contacted by the victim of an assault, who reportedly told them that she was dating Isaac Cook III, who had asked her to take him to Salisbury the night before. According to the report, Cook became angry when the victim refused, and left through the front door of their Bishopville home with a black handgun, and fired off a few rounds, then returned inside, and apparently "threatened to blow her brains out," while holding the handgun.

Police say Cook then grabbed her by the throat, and threw her down on a bed. The victim was reportedly able to flee a short time later.

Cook had also reportedly sent the victim several threatening voice and text messages since the incident. Police say they found the messages to be very aggressive towards the victim, and implied that Cook would find the victim and harm her.

Cook was arrested in Wicomico County, and charged with 1st and 2nd degree assault, and telephone misuse. He is now being held without bond.
