Thief takes shoes off man's feet

A Salisbury man is behind bars for felony common law robbery after police say he pushed a man down and stole his tennis shoes.
Tyrone Rufus Davis, 33, of 810 Pine St., was charged Tuesday evening and given a $5,000 secured bond.
According to the report, the incident happened March 18 around 615 W. Innes St.
According to the report, James Rogers was walking down Innes on the sidewalk when a Pontiac Firebird pulled over next to him. Police said Davis got out of the car and pushed Rogers to the ground.
Davis demanded Rogers give him his shoes, but Davis took them himself, reaching down and pulling the shoes — Reebok Iversons — off of Rogers’ feet, police said.
Rogers knew Davis’ nickname, and was able to identify him as the man who robbed him of his tennis shoes.
