Four charged with breaking into vacant East Cemetery Street home

Police said a man who alerted officers that he’d been “jumped” by a group was charged with breaking into a vacant home along with the group.
A report said Salisbury Police officers were approached late Saturday night at Park and Martin Luther King Jr. avenues by Joshua Clark. He told the officers he was beat up because he was accused of talking to the girlfriend of another man.
Clark said the group began jumping on him. A report noted Clark had no visible marks on him. However, police checked the home where Clark said the incident occurred.
Officers arrived to a vacant home in the 600 block of East Cemetery Street. The front door was padlocked, but the back door was unlocked. There were also private property and no trespassing signs located at the home.
There were three people inside who were charged with breaking into the home along with Clark.
Police charged the following:
• Joshua Dimitri Clark, 22, of the 200 block of North Long Street, Rowan Helping Ministries shelter, with misdemeanor breaking and entering. Clark remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $1,500 secured bond and is expected in court in January.
• Aaron Jamar Boyer, 21, of the streets of Salisbury, with misdemeanor breaking and entering. Boyer remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $500 secured bond. He is expected in court in January.
