Woman robbed at Wendy's drive-thru

The Salisbury Police Department is looking for a man who robbed a Salisbury woman shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Wendy’s drive-thru on East Innes Street.
Lelonna Richardson, 33, said she pulled up to place her order when a black male wearing a black jacket and black scarf opened the the door to her Chrysler Pacifica. “He told me to get out of the car or he was going to shoot me,” she said. “I just froze so he punched me straight in the face, leaned over and grabbed my purse and took off running.”
Richardson said the man jumped over the wooden fence, heading toward Fisher Street.  “It happened so quickly,” she said. “Normally, I always have my doors locked.”
Richardson’s purse contained two debit cards, a checkbook and $2 cash.”
There were some Bible verse cards in there,” she said. “He needs those.”
Richardson sustained minor injuries in the incident. “There was blood in my mouth at first and my tooth feels numb,” she said.
Salisbury Police Sgt. J.M. Robertson said he dusted the vehicle’s door handle for fingerprints.
“I took one off of her car,” he said. “It may be hers or it may be the suspect’s.”
Robertson said the restaurant at 515 E. Innes St. does not have surveillance cameras outside.
