The Salisbury Police Department is seeking a man investigators say robbed a woman early Saturday as she was withdrawing money from an automated teller machine near Salisbury Mall.
The 21-year-old victim told police she was at the CashPoints ATM at 1935 W. Jake Alexander Blvd. just after midnight. She had her vehicle’s door ajar to reach the machine when a man approached and pointed a handgun at her.
The suspect took the $60 she’d just withdrawn and told her to get $100 more.
The suspect took off in a burgundy vehicle and was followed by a witness near Clancy Street. The witness lost the suspect at a dead end. The suspect abandoned his car and took off on foot.
Another witness spotted the suspect near CVS Pharmacy.
“We have a suspect and are continuing to investigate,” Salisbury Police Chief Mark Wilhelm said.
The suspect is described as a white male between 17 and 25 years old and between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with black shorts. A white scarf covered parts of his face.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245.
