2 Sought in Salisbury Burger King Armed Robbery

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police say a reward is being offered for any tips that lead to the arrests of two suspects wanted for holding up the Burger King on West Naylor Mill Road.

Police said the crime occurred shortly before 1 a.m. Monday, when two suspects approached an employee at the rear door when he was taking out the trash. Both suspects displayed handguns and ordered the employee back inside the business, according to police. Investigators said the suspects then approached the manager and demanded money from the cash registers and safe. The manager was struck several times in the head when he was unable to open the safe, police said. The suspects then allegedly instructed both employees to remove their pants and shoes and then tied their hands and feet. The suspects next removed an undisclosed amount of money from the business and the employees before fleeing the business through the rear doors and taking off in a car that was parked nearby.

The getaway car is described as a dark (possibly blue) four-door sedan with unknown registration. The vehicle was last observed traveling westbound on West Naylor Mill Road. One employee was treated and released from Peninsula Regional Medical Center for minor head injuries. The employees were able to untie themselves and notify the police.

Police said the two suspects were described as:

  • Black male, light skin, between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-2, stocky build, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black mask, gloves, and armed with a handgun.
  • Black male, dark skin, between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-2, thin build, and wearing all black clothing, a black mask, gloves, and armed with a handgun.

The Potomac Foods Group, which operates the Burger King restaurant that was robbed, has partnered with Crime Solvers and increased the reward up to $2,500 for tips that lead to arrest.

Anyone with information about this incident should contact the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3165 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
