Salisbury police arrested two suspects Friday in connection with an October robbery that left one person beaten and bloodied on the side of the road.

After about a month of work, police arrested Jalon Jaques Adkins and Tomanche Mysheme Jackson for the same two charges — robbery with firearms or other dangerous weapons and assault inflicting serious injury.

Adkins, 18, of West Henderson Street, remained in jail Monday afternoon under a $25,000 secured bond. Jackson, 18, of Salisbury, remained in jail under a $50,000 secured bond.

Police say the men were involved in a robbery Oct. 6 at the corner of Clay and Cherry streets — near the Salisbury National Cemetery. Police suspect Adkins and Jackson are two of four men involved in the robbery.

The victim, who was walking home, was initially confronted by a single person. Three others soon jumped out of a nearby grey Pontiac, according to police. Wielding knives, the group of four attacked the unnamed victim, leaving him with a bloody nose, mouth and forehead. The group allegedly stole $500 and then drove away.

Warrants for both Adkins and Jackson are dated Nov. 4.

Adkins was arrested on the 300 block of North Whitehead Avenue in Spencer and booked into jail on Nov. 6 at 9:58 p.m.

Jackson was arrested on the 300 block of Faith Road in Salisbury and booked into jail Nov. 6 at 3:26 p.m.

Both were arrested without incident.
