Home Invasion In Sequoyah County Falsely Reported

Deputies have learned that a potential home invasion in Sallisaw was falsely reported following a domestic dispute, according to the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office.

One man is in jail accused of assault in the incident.

A woman called authorities last night to report two men had broken into a home in Sallisaw, and upon further investigation, deputies discovered the altercation began as a domestic dispute and no burglary was committed.

Thomas Condit has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. Deputies say that Condit and his wife were recently separated, and Condit was living with the couple’s minor child. Last night, Condit and the minor visited the home where Condit’s wife was residing.

She and Condit got into an altercation outside of the home which left bruises on the woman.

The minor child then entered the home and got into an altercation with a man inside  causing minor injuries to the male subject, authorities say.

Both of the injured parties declined medical attention, and investigators say a shot was fired inside the home but was not directed at any one person.

Authorities say there was no damage inside or outside the home, and nothing was taken. The report will be sent to Oklahoma Juvenile Authority to determine if any charges will be brought against the minor.
