SALISBURY, Md. - The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office arrested three suspects in connection to an armed robbery, and are still looking for a fourth suspect.

On October 28, the sheriff's department responded to a home on the 700-block of Dennis Street in Salisbury for a home invasion-robbery. 

The victim told deputies he was home alone when the suspects forced their way in. Authorities say the suspects were armed with firearms and beat the victim. 

According to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Department, the suspects then stole items from the home and then ran away. The victim was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for his injuries. 

Detectives identified the suspects as 21-year-old Eric Anthony Lemon, 28-year-old Diante Maurice Purnell, 26-year-old Dominic Keith Chandler, and 25-year-old Jamal Marcus Church.

On November 30, authorities executed four search warrants at homes in Salisbury. They were able to locate and arrest Lemon, Purnell, and Chandler. Additionally, three firearms were located and seized during the search of the homes. 

Lemon, Purnell and Chandler were charged and are being held without bond, at the Wicomico County Detention Center.

Detectives are still attempting to locate Jamal Marcus Church. Anyone with information about this case or the location of Jamal Church are urged to call Detective Robert Wilson at 410- 548-4898.
