SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police say a 20-year-old man accused of threatening a victim with a knife during an armed robbery was already wanted by authorities for an unrelated crime.

Police said Michael Lashawn Miles, of Delmar, Del., went to 2000 Boxwood Drive shortly before 3 p.m. Monday for a drug transaction. The transaction turned into a robbery when Miles drew a knife on a victim and threaten to use it if the victim did not cooperate with his demands, according to investigators.

Police said after Miles forced entry into the apartment, he took money and other items from the victim prior to leaving the scene.

The victim was not injured during the robbery, authorities said. 

On Tuesday, the Maryland State Apprehension Team joined forces with the Salisbury Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division to take Miles into custody.  

Police have charged Miles with armed robbery, robbery, first-and second-degree assault, first- and third-degree burglary, having a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and theft over $1,000.

Miles, who was also wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for an unrelated assault, is being held at the Wicomico Detention Center on a $150,000 bond.
