The Marshall County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man who they say assaulted a deputy during a routine security check Sunday. 

The suspect has been identified as 41-year-old Michael Paul Sisk. 

Authorities say the deputy was unable to find the owner of the Swearengin Community home, but instead encountered Sisk. 

While conducting his investigation, the deputy discovered Sisk had narcotics in his possession and attempted to place him under arrest. 

Sisk did not comply and fought back against the deputy, breaking his hand in the process. The suspect then fled the scene on foot. 

The deputy was transported to an area hospital for treatment for his injuries. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Sisk is asked to contact the Marshall County Sheriff's Office at 256-582-2034
