Homeowner scares away would-be robbers

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, June 11, 2013

A homeowner scared away two men he believed tried to rob him after they entered his home through an unlocked door.
The incident occurred about 12:20 a.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of West Steele Street. The victim, Mitchell Wood, told Salisbury Police investigators he left a side door unlocked for his brother. He later heard a noise and he found two masked men in the house.
The men had bandanas over the lower half of their faces and one of them was armed with a shotgun. Wood ducked into a bedroom and yelled out to the men that he “had something for them,” a report said.
The two men ran from the home, officials said.
The attempted robbery occurred not long after a chase in the area by East Spencer Police Department. The chase was near North Long and Henderson streets. East Spencer officers were looking for three males, two of whom matched the description of the men who tried to rob the homeowner at West Steele Street. Repeated attempts to reach East Spencer Police were unsuccessful.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245.
