SALISBURY, Md.- Police on Thursday announced the arrest of a suspect wanted in connection with a home invasion robbery that occurred earlier this month in Salisbury.

Salisbury police said 23-year-old Joseph Howard Greenhawk Jr. was taken into custody on Wednesday by members of the Maryland State Apprehension Team. Authorities said Greenhawk was indentified as one of the two suspects involved in a Dec. 5 home invasion robbery that happened on the 100 block of Cedar Crossing.

According to investigators, Greenhawk and the second unidentified suspect entered the home and accosted several victims inside at gunpoint. Police said the suspects stole money and other property before running off. No one was injured during the incident.

According to police, Greenhawk was determined to be the suspect who stole the victims' marijuana and cash. Following his arrest, he was charged with armed robbery robbery, kidnapping, burglary, first- and second-degree assault, false imprisonment, handgun on person, firearm use in a violent crime and theft less than $1,000. He was then turned over to the custody of Wicomico Central Booking.

Salisbury police continue to look for the second suspect, described as a male of unknown race, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, with a thin build and wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department 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.
