Man charged with having sexual contact with Huntsville teen

Posted: Updated:

A Hanceville man was arrested and charged with having sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl after adding her as a friend on Facebook. 

Hanceville Police arrested 42-year-old Anthony Wade Sisk, of Hanceville, on Thanksgiving Day. Huntsville Police alerted authorities about Sisk, but won't release who tipped them off.

Sisk was charged with second degree sexual abuse, second degree sodomy, enticing a child, and electronic solicitation of a child. 

Huntsville Police said Sisk contacted the victim on Facebook. Investigators believe Sisk visited the 15-year-old at least twice in Huntsville. On at least one visit, Sisk allegedly had sexual contact with the teen. 

Sisk lives in Hanceville and works in Cullman. Huntsville Police are looking into if any other victims exist. 

A background check into Sisk doesn't show any previous sexual predator crimes. 

Huntsville Police said this is a crime not often see in Huntsville.

"There are bad folks out there that want to harm young folks. Just be careful of that. Not everyone is who they say they are in the internet world," said Dr. Harry Hobbs with the Huntsville Police Department.

After this story aired, Mr. Sisk contacted WAFF 48 News stating, "My family is hurt enough from the lies of the girl. She lied about her age and told me she was 18." We have requested an on camera interview with Mr. Sisk and will update this story with his response.
