Marquis Dequan Ballard, 19, and charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, violence, and minor in possession of a firearm.

Police said Ballard's arrest stemmed from an incident that happened shortly before 11 a.m Tuesday at a home on the 400 block of E. Lincoln Ave.

According to police, the robbery victim went to the home with clothing items because Ballard said he wanted to purchase some items. Investigators said that when the victim arrived, Ballard showed a gun and two other suspects confronted the victim, took the bag of clothing, and escorted the victim from the home.

Police identified Ballard as a suspect on Wednesday and took him into custody on the aforementioned charges. He was then turned over to the custody of Wicomico Central Booking.

Anyone with information on the other two suspects in the case is asked to call the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3165.
