SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was robbed Tuesday when a man approached his car at an intersection and pointed a revolver in his face.
According to Salisbury Police, the 28-year-old pulled up to the intersection of Park Avenue and North Arlington Street when a man approached him, asking about the For Sale sign in his car.
The report said the man had just gotten off work about 10 p.m. and was on his way home when the suspect stopped him and asked about the price and year of his red Cadillac.
The robber then pulled out a silver revolver and put it to the man’s face.
The report said the robber told the 28-year-old to “line his pockets” and then victim pulled a wallet, cell phone and $200 in cash from his pants.
The robber took only the cash and left on foot.
He was described as a 6-foot, 160-pound, light-skinned black male.
He was wearing black pants, a black hoodie and a white T-shirt. He was also described as having a beard.
According to authorities, the victim came to the police department about 30 minutes after the robbery to report the robbery.
The man told officers that he did not call 911 nor stop any officers that he passed on the way to the department because he had panicked.
No other details were available Wednesday morning.
Police said they are continuing to investigate the robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to call Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
