1 Teen Arrested, Police Seeking 4 Others in Salisbury Assault, Robbery

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy, and they are looking for four more teenagers in connection to a burglary of a home, and the assault and robbery of a food delivery driver Tuesday night in Salisbury.

Police say just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to the 900 block of Mabel Avenue for a reported robbery. The investigation revealed that telephone order was placed with Sub-Runners, a local sub shop, and the order was to be delivered to the 900 block of Mabel Avenue, according to police. Once the driver arrived, he was approached by five teenage boys who police say physically assaulted him and stole the food he was delivering. The teens took off with the food, according to police. The driver received non-life threatening injuries.

About six minutes later, police say officers responded to the 900 block of Johnson Street for a residential burglary in progress. As officers arrived, police say they witnessed the suspects climbing from a window of the home. Police say the boys saw them and took off, but officers were able to catch one of them.

The 16-year-old, who was not identified given that he is a minor, was arrested and charged with robbery, fourth-degree burglary, theft less than $100, and second-degree assault. He was released to the custody of the Department of Juvenile Services where he was being detained as of Wednesday afternoon.

Police are still looking for the four other suspects. They are all believed to be between 14 and 17 years of age and are African American. One was described as being thin build with shoulder length dreadlocks, while another was described as being medium build with short black hair and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt.

Detectives are continuing to investigate this incident in an effort to identify the remaining suspects. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Salisbury Police Department (410 548-3113 or Crime Solvers (410) 548-1776.
