SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police have arrested four suspects accused of robbing a 28-year-old man with a gun and a Taser late Saturday afternoon.

Police said that at around 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, officers and detectives responded to the Top Ten convenience store, located at 825 W. Isabella St., for a reported armed robbery. Police said the investigation revealed that the victim was approached by one of the suspects at this location for what was described as a drug transaction.

Police said that while the victim was at the Top Ten, he met with the suspects in a vehicle in the parking lot of the store. The victim got into the vehicle on his own accord to initiate the transaction, according to police. Investigators said that while in the vehicle, one of the suspects displayed a Taser and threatened the victim while demanding his personal property. A second suspect then displayed a handgun and pointed it at the victim while also demanding his personal property, police said. 

Police said the victim attempted to get out of the vehicle, but the suspects would not let him out and the vehicle began to drive away with him in it. 

A short distance later, the victim was able to get out of the vehicle and contact 911, according to investigators. They said the victim was not injured as a result of this incident, but his personal property was stolen.

As the investigation progressed into the evening, detectives were able to gather additional vehicle and suspect descriptions from the victim. The information was then shared with neighboring law enforcement agencies for assistance in locating either the vehicle or the suspects.

At approximately 10:45 p.m. Saturday, a deputy from the Wicomico County Sherriff's Office located a vehicle that matched the description of the suspect's vehicle that was described earlier in the evening. The deputy initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle in
the 1300 block of West Road.

Further investigation by the deputy and Salisbury police detectives indicated that the vehicle was the same one described from the robbery.

he four suspects within the vehicle were identified as 24-year-old Pierre Baul Hilaire; 22-year-old Jerry Michael Janvier; 30-year old Pierre David Eliassaint; and 23-year-old
old Isnailder (NMN) Cetaute. All suspects were positively identified and arrested without incident. All four suspects charged with robbery and related charges and transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center where they are being held without bond.

Police said that same evening, a search and seizure warrant was executed on the suspect vehicle and detectives recovered a loaded Glock .45 caliber handgun, an unloaded Canik 9mm handgun, an unloaded Taurus 9mm handgun, a
Taser, and two machete style knives. 

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 410-548-3165.
