Woman accused of knifepoint robbery surrenders

SALISBURY — A woman accused of threatening a Rockwell man with a knife and taking cash from his wallet turned herself in at the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday morning.
Amy Gainey, 38, of Crescent Road, was wanted on an outstanding charge of felony robbery with a dangerous weapon after an incident July 20.
Deputies said Gainey approached a man at his home on Orphanage Road and demanded prescription medication.
