SALISBURY — Three Livingstone students were arrested Wednesday evening after they robbed another student at gunpoint.

According to Salisbury Police spokeswoman Shelia Lingle, the victim received a call asking him to come to one of the school’s residence halls. When he opened the door to the dorm room, he told police, he was met with the barrel of a .40-caliber handgun.

While one student, allegedly Deshawn Maurice Watson, 19, held the gun on the victim and told him to, “Give me what you got,” two other students — identified by authorities as Dajon Pierre Amaker, 19, and Reginald Christopher Rohadfox, 22 — went through his pockets.

The victim told police that when they found nothing, the three bolted. The victim flagged down security when he left the dorm room, and campus security called in the Salisbury Police Department.

The three were arrested and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, and the gun was taken as evidence. Watson was also charged with possession of a weapon on campus. Watson and Amaker remain in the Rowan County Detention Center, each under a $25,000 secured bond.
