SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police on Friday announced the arrests of three suspects accused of assaulting a 50-year-old man with baseball bats at a Salisbury convenience store. 

Police said the crime happened at around 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, at Thirsty's, located on Snow Hill Road, and was witnessed by several bystanders. 

According to police, the victim was at Thirsty’s purchasing fuel when he was attacked by three men with baseball bats. Police said the assault started in the parking lot of the business, quickly shifted inside the business, and eventually came to an end back outside of the business.

The victim was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he was treated for what police described as serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

During the late evening of Sept. 22, two of the suspects were identified as 48-year-old Shawn Christopher Saunders of Snow Hill, and 50-year-old Clarence Edward Pruitt, of Ridgely. Saunders and Pruitt were arrested the following day. Saunders and Pruitt were each charged with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and possession of a dangerous weapon. 

On Sept. 25, the third suspect was identified as 25-year-old Vernon Dianglo Brown Jr., of Salisbury. He was arrested the following day and charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and false imprisonment.

All three men are being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center. 

The investigation is ongoing and detectives are requesting anyone who happened to be in the Thirsty's parking lot or inside the store at approximately 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, to contact the Salisbury Police Department Criminal Investigation Division and speak with a detective. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Salisbury Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (833) SBY-CITY or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
