By Shavonne Potts
Two Salisbury teens were charged early this month with robbing a Salisbury High School student as he was leaving his job at the Hurley Family YMCA.
The Salisbury Police Department charged Allen Humphrey Tillery, 16, of 715 Hall St. Apt. 66T, and Dominique Finger, 17, of 1614 Standish St., Apt. 4B, with common law robbery.
The two teens were arrested at Salisbury High on April 2. Both remain in the Rowan County Detention Center, each under a $5,000 bond.
Police say four men attacked and beat the 19-year-old Salisbury High School student outside the YMCA while he waited for a relative to pick him up.
The incident occurred in February at the YMCA, which is located at 828 W. Jake Alexander Blvd.
According to a Salisbury Police Department report, four males approached the victim near the entrance, asking if he had any money. The victim told them he did not.
One of the suspects asked the victim if he could fight him. The victim said no and tried to walk away.
The suspect then punched the victim in the face. When the suspect struck him again, the victim fought back, the report said.
Another suspect held the victim down and kicked him.
The victim’s cell phone and wallet were taken. The phone was ditched and the victim later got his wallet back.
The victim suffered bruising to the face and scrapes.
