Two Teens Arrested, Charged with Attempted Robbery of a Taxi

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- The Salisbury Police Departments has arrested two teenagers on attempted robbery charges.

Police say on Tuesday December 9th, at approximately 7:43 pm, a Bailey's Taxi driver picked up three teenagers from the 300 block of Morris Street in Fruitland, who asked to be taken to the 600 block of Smith Street in Salisbury.

During the drive to Smith Street, police say one of the teens put an object to the back of the driver's head that the driver believed to be a gun. The driver then stopped the car on Smith Street and the teens began assaulting him and going through his pockets.

Police say the driver was able to fight off the teen, who then fled the area on foot.

Police say what was originally believed a real handgun was determined to be an airsoft gun resembling a real handgun, which the driver broke during the confrontation.

An investigation by Salisbury Police led to the arrest of a 15 year old suspect and a 16 year old suspect and charged both with attempted robbery.

The driver was treated by EMS on the scene for facial injuries.
