SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police are looking for a person of interest who may have information about early Monday's armed robbery of the Royal Farms convenience store at 901 Snow Hill Road.

According to police, two unknown suspects entered the store shortly after 3 a.m. Police said one of the suspects, who was armed with a handgun, shouted to the clerk, "I want the money! Give me the money!" While this was going on, the other suspect trained what appeared to be a military-style assault weapon at the clerk, according to investigators.

Investigators said both suspects then went behind the counter and demanded the clerk to open the safe. The clerk was unable to open the safe and was then told to get the money from the register. The suspect armed with the handgun grabbed a plastic Royal Farms bag from behind the counter and placed the cash from the register inside the bag. He then told the clerk to remain on the floor, face down, behind the counter and not to move.  Both suspects then ran out of the store and fled in an unknown direction. No injuries were reported.

Police said investigators have since learned that just prior to the robbery occurring, a male had entered the business, bought a drink, and asked to purchase a $50 phone card. He was being transported by a Bailey's Taxi, Unit #14.  Detectives are attempting to identify this individual as a person of interest who may have information concerning the robbery. 

Anyone who can identify this person of interest is asked to call the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3165 or (410) 548-3113.

Meantime, the search continues for the two robbery suspects. They are described as follows:  

  • The suspect armed with a handgun was described as a black male, approximately 18-21 years of age, about 5-foot-7, thin build, dark-skinned, wearing a light gray hooded sweatshirt, light blue jeans, dark shoes, unknown colored gloves, and a black cloth over his face.  
  • The suspect armed with the assault weapon was described as a black male,  approximately 18-21 years of age, about 5-foot-10, thin build, dark-skinned, wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, dark colored pants, white shoes, unknown colored gloves, and a black cloth over his face.  

Anyone with information about the identities of the two suspects is asked to call the aforementioned numbers.
