SALISBURY, Md.- Police have arrested a suspect wanted in connection with an armed robbery and assault in Salisbury that left a victim with multiple facial fractures.

The incident is alleged to have happened on Jan. 29, on the 1000 block of South Schumaker Drive. The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said the victim was in a parking lot when 29-year-old Don Wesley Vass of Hebron approached him and punched him in the face with a hard and metallic object. Vass then grabbed a $5 from the victim and fled the scene, according to investigators.
