A man has been bound to the grand jury for his part in kidnapping a man outside Walmart.
The suspect, Hollis Fisk Jr., 29, was bound to the grand jury following a preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke on the charge of kidnapping. A co-defendant, Brandon Kyle Bradley, who had also been charged in the kidnapping, reportedly committed suicide and his case has been dismissed leaving Fisk as the lone defendant. The crime of kidnapping carries eight to 12 years and Fisk has a lengthy prior record.
Much is still a mystery about why the victim was reportedly confronted by the men. Officers are still seeking a motive and a connection between the parties.
According to the victim, Fisk and Bradley met him inside Walmart and told him to meet them outside. For reasons he has not revealed, the victim tried to get away by hurrying over to the lawn and garden exit. However, the exit was locked leaving him no other way out than the place where the men were waiting for him.
“As he exited the door he was approached by Fisk and Bradley who advised him not to make a scene and get into the vehicle,” said McMinnville Police detective Todd Rowland.
The detective said the victim was then taken to Underwood Road where he was assaulted by Fisk.
“The victim was able to break free and run to a nearby home where he gained shelter,” Rowland said on how the incident ended.
Fisk remains held under $50,000 bond awaiting next month’s installment of the grand jury.
