Man Accused of Shooting Grandparents has Previous Charges in Sumter Co. | Crime
The bond hearing for 25-year-old Joshua Allen Cook, the man accused of shooting both of his grandparents in Warner Robins this week, has been moved to next Thursday.
Cook is charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon in that case.
But it turns out this incident wasn't the first time Cook may have been involved in violent acts.
Chief Deputy Eric Bryant of the Sumter County Sheriff's Office says Cook also has two other pending aggravated assault cases stemming from an incident in Americus in September 2012.
According to Sumter County Sheriff's Office documents, Cook allegedly assaulted a woman with a vacuum cleaner, and assaulted another man with box cutters. Bryant says it appears there was a fight, and neighbors called 911 after hearing screaming.
Cook was allowed bond in Sumter County on the two aggravated assault charges, simple battery, and 2nd degree criminal destruction of property. One of his bond conditions was attending alcohol rehab.
Bryant told 13WMAZ he wasn't aware of Cook's Houston County arrest, but says he plans on notifying officials there.
