A Sioux Falls man is behind bars following an assault case over the weekend in the southeast part of the city.

Dakota News Now reports the incident occurred just before 11 on Saturday night, (May 20) in the 3200 block of East Michah Lane.

The victim in the case, a 29-year-old Sioux Falls woman had called a Lyft to go downtown to join some friends earlier that evening when she noticed a white pickup truck following the Lyft vehicle she was inside.

According to Dakota News Now, later that evening, the victim took another Lyft vehicle home, in the process of dropping off friends, and departing the downtown area, she noticed the same white pickup following her yet again. This time, the journey took the victim through a neighborhood that ended up in a cul-de-sac. That's when the suspect in the white pickup blocked the road with his vehicle, got out of the truck, and pointed a gun at the victim and a 36-year-old Lyft driver from Sioux Falls.

The victim and the driver immediately notified police, and once authorities arrived, Dakota News Now reports they took 53-year-old Chaun Brison into custody.

Brison claims the reason he was following the victim inside the Lyft vehicle that evening and eventually pulled a gun on her, is that he believed the victim was somehow connected to some knocking the suspect had heard at his door earlier that evening which alarmed him.

Police ended up arresting and charging Brison with two counts of aggravated assault resulting from the incident.
