SALISBURY — A Salisbury man told deputies he was robbed at gunpoint when he met a friend at an intersection Friday morning.
According to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report, Jared Chardonneau told deputies Behtan Hashemzadeh asked to meet him to borrow $50.
But when Chardonneau showed up, the report said, a former coworker pointed a handgun at him.
Chardonneau met the two at Coley and Stone roads in Salisbury about 2 a.m., a police report said.
He told deputies Hashemzadeh was driving a Ford Ranger pickup and recognized the passenger as Michael Fulcher.
He and Fulcher worked together at a Food Lion warehouse several years ago, the report said.
When Fulcher approached, he pulled out a handgun, and grabbed the handful of cash Chardonneau was holding, the report said.
Deputies have obtained warrants for Fulcher for felony robbery with a dangerous weapon, and also have warrants for Hashemzadeh on charges of felony aiding and abetting an armed robbery.
Authorities ask that anyone with information contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office at 704-216-8700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
