Updated: One Adult, Five Juveniles Arrested for Salisbury Assault

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say one adult and five juveniles have been arrested following a weekend robbery and assault near Salisbury University.

Salisbury police said a group of Salisbury University students were walking in the area of Bateman and South Division streets at around 2 a.m. Sunday when when the assault occurred.

Police said the students were approaching Wayne Street, when they passed another group sitting along the street who began to yell derogatory remarks and profanities at them. Police said that one of the students, a 20-year-old SU student, stopped to address the group, Dontrae Nathaniel Robinson, 18, of Salisbury, punched her in face and knocked her to the ground.

Police said that while the victim was on the ground, four 16-year-old girls and a 15-year-old girl began punching and kicking her, then stole her cell phone. Robinson and the girls then fled the area, investigators said. 

The woman and her friends were able to give a description of the suspects to officers and they were all quickly located in the area of Spring Avenue and Pryor Avenue. 

Officer arrested Robinson without incident. While they were attempting to take three of the five girls into custody, the other two tried to stop the arrest. Investigators say one of the 16-year-olds spit on an officer and a disorderly crowd began to grow around them. Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office and Maryland State Police quickly responded and assisted officers, and all six suspects were subsequently placed under arrest without further incident. 

Robinson was transported to Wicomico County Central Booking where he awaits an initial appearance before a District Court Commissioner. The three juvenile females who were directly related to the initial assault, robbery and spitting on the officer were transported to the Lower Shore Juvenile Justice Center where they are being held. The other two juvenile females who interfered with the officers' arrests and were acting disorderly were released to their respective guardian, police said.

The victim was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries to her upper torso and released.

As detectives continue this investigation and review area CCTV footage, the Salisbury Police Department encourages anyone with information concerning this incident to contact the Salisbury Police Department Criminal Investigation Division (410) 548-3113 or Crime Solvers (410) 548-1776.
