The Salisbury Police are seeking a man they say robbed a woman early Saturday morning while she got money from an automated teller machine near the Salisbury Mall.

The victim, a 21-year-old Salisbury woman, was at the Cash Points ATM at 1935 W. Jake Alexander Blvd., when a man came up to her and pointed a handgun at her.

He took the money sheíd just withdrawn and told her to get more.

The suspect took off in a burgundy vehicle and was followed by a witness near Clancy St.

The suspect abandoned his car and took off on foot.

“We have a suspect and are continuing to investigate,” said Police Chief Mark Wilhelm.

The suspect is a white male, between 17 and 25 years old. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with black shorts. He had a white scarf covering parts of his face. He was between 5 foot 10 inches and 6 feet tall.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbur-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
