SALISBURY, Md.- Police have arrested two more suspects wanted in connection with an armed robbery and assault that occurred at a Salisbury home last weekend.

The Maryland State Apprehension Team on Thursday located and arrested 35-year-old Demetric Latroy Cooper and 18-year-old Tyrone Dashawn White, both of Salisbury. They are eached charged with armed robbery, robbery, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and use of a deadly weapon with intent to injure. Both were turned over to the custody of Wicomico Central Booking.

The crime allegedly happened shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday at a home located on the 300 block of Carrolton Avenue. Salisbury police said the investigation into the incident revealed that several male suspects entered the home and assaulted the victim.
