SALISBURY, Md. (WBOC)- Salisbury police are asking the public's help in identifying and locating a suspect wanted in connection with a Wednesday night armed robbery.

Police said that at around 6 p.m. officers responded to the Thirsty's on 1120 E. Church St. for a report of an armed robbery.  Further investigation revealed two victims were sitting inside their vehicle when the suspect approached them. Police say the suspect approached the driver, and initiated a conversation, before grabbing his arm and demanding the victims' money and cell phones.

The victim said he saw a handgun in the suspect's waistband and surrendered. Police say the suspect then drove away in an older-model, 4-door Honda Accord, burgundy in color. Police say a second suspect was inside the car, but never approached the victims in this incident.

Police describe the suspect as a black male with a shaved head, about 30 years of age, 5-foot-9 and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information about this incident should contact the Salisbury Police at (410) 548-3165 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776. Crime Solvers will pay up to $1,000 for tips that lead to arrest.
