Man in jail faces new charge
SALISBURY — A Salisbury man, already in jail for an April 12 assault of a man in a hotel room, was charged last night with another assault that happened on the same day.
William Isaac Darryl Sanders, 28, of 818 Lincolnton Road, was charged with assault inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a felon. His bond was increased by $10,000.
Police said Sanders and Joshua Kirkley, of East Bank Street, got into an argument April 12 at the intersection of Park Avenue and Long Street, and Sanders pistol-whipped Kirkley, sending him to the hospital for several gashes to his head.
Kirkley was treated at Rowan Regional Medical Center and released the same day.
Sanders was in jail already, charged with the April 12 beating of a Salisbury man.
Salisbury Police reported James Neil Scott and his girlfriend, Mary Ann Beason, were sitting in their hotel room at the Economy Inn when two men entered — one with a gun — and began beating Scott.
Beason managed to get out of the room and call 911.
Police charged two men with the assault, including Sanders, who was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a felon. He was given a $5,000 secured bond on that charge at the time.
