A Pennsylvania man was robbed at gunpoint outside a local hotel early Monday.
The victim, Amandeep Singh, 24, was robbed at 1:17 a.m. outside the Economy Inn, 319 Bendix Drive.
A man approached him, he told police, and asked if he wanted to buy some drugs.
Singh told the suspect no, and the suspect asked if he were sure. When Singh again said he wasn’t interested, the suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded Singh’s wallet. The suspect took about $80, credit cards and other items from the wallet.
Singh jumped into his vehicle and took off. He told police the suspect and another man in an older model Oldsmobile or Buick followed him until he reached Interstate 85.
When Singh no longer saw the other vehicle behind him, he called 911.
The Salisbury Police are looking for a black male, 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-3, in his early 20s, with dreadlocks. He was wearing a black hoodie and black pants.
Singh, who is in the Navy, was heading to Florida.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245 or the Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333.
