One man charged in home invasion; two more suspects sought

Salisbury Police Det. Mike Colvin has arrested one person and is looking for two more in connection with the July 27 home invasion at 1465 Stevens Drive in Salisbury.
Christopher Philyaw, 18, of Faith, has been charged with first-degree burglary and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
He is being held in the Rowan County Detention Center under $50,000 bond pending a first appearance in court.
Police are looking for two more suspects, Jason Glenn Locklear and Sarah Elizabeth Patterson.
Locklear is a white male, 20 years old, 5 feet 11 inches, weighing 150-160 pounds, with reddish blond hair.
Patterson is a 17-year-old white female, about 5 feet tall and weighing 110 pounds. She has black and blonde hair.
Both Locklear and Patterson have the address 4540 Long Ferry Road; they were last seen driving a blue Pontiac Phoenix with license plate YSA-3851.
Salisbury Police say Ray and Martha Baker were bound, beaten and robbed in the early morning hours of July 27.
They told police two people entered their Stevens Drive home, pointed a gun at Martha, beat Ray and took some items from the home.
Ray Baker said the doorbell rang at about 2:45 a.m. When he went to answer the door, he noticed the deadbolt was unlocked, but the main door was locked.
When he opened the door, a man told him there was something outside he needed to see. The man punched him in the ribs.
Ray Baker was tied with a plastic zip tie and a towel was placed over his head. Martha Baker’s hands and feet were bound and a cloth was placed over her head.
The man then demanded some hydrocodone.
The two men ransacked the couple’s home and stole money, credit cards, a rifle, a revolver, video games and a video game console. The incident took place over two hours.
