Two charged with larceny after authorities say they stole cellphone, six cents

Police say two Salisbury men robbed another man Saturday taking his cell, six cents and a pack of cigarettes. One of the men who took the items threatened the victim against calling law enforcement.
The Salisbury Police charged Rodney Wiley Davis, 36, of the 200 block of North Long St., with felony larceny and misdemeanor communicating threats. Charles Wade Wilson, 41, of the 400 block of Kincaid Road, was charged with felony larceny.
The victim was in the 500 block of East Innes Street when officers arrived. He told police he was at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and East Innes Street, near McDonald’s when two men approached him. The men demanded money, a report said.
The victim told the men he had no money and pulled out his pockets to show them. One of the men, later identified as Rodney Davis grabbed the victim’s cell phone, took the change and the cigarettes.
The victim was told if he called police he would be beaten up. A description of the suspects was given to law enforcement. An officer who spotted the men panhandling earlier was able to stop them.
Davis and Wilson remain in the Rowan County Detention Center each under a $2,500 secured bond. Davis also has a pending charge of soliciting/begging for money, a misdemeanor.
Wilson has been convicted of driving while impaired, communicating threats, driving while license revoked and assault with a deadly weapon.
