Friday night Salisbury Police were called to investigate an assault with a gun at an abandoned house on Clay Street.
According to the report, someone threw a brick through a window in the home of Ronald Woodruff, of Knox Street.
Woodruff went outside to see what was going on, and saw four people walking down the street, who told him they saw a man in a green jacket running north on Clay Street.
Woodruff’s neighbor, Gerry Poltera, met Woodruff outside to see what had happened, and decided to investigate an abandoned house.
Poltera reported to police that a black man was standing just inside the door and pointed a Mac-10 submachine gun at him, and said, “Don’t say a word, just walk away,” police reported.
Poltera walked off the porch and back to his home and called police.
Poltera told police he heard someone jump out of the window of the abandoned home, but did not know which direction the man ran.
The suspect was described as being 20-25 years of age, around 6-feet tall, weighing between 165 and 180 lbs, clean shaven and wearing black jeans and a black sweatshirt.
Anyone with information into this incident is urged to contact the Salisbury Police Department, 704-638-5333, or, Salisbury-Rowan Crimestoppers, 1-866-925-JAIL (9245).
