SALISBURY — Four Charlotte teenagers who were at the American Quarry earlier this week have been cited for trespassing on the property.

Rowan County authorities said one of the teens cut his finger and had a head injury.

The teenager was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem on Monday. He was gone before Rowan County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the quarry and his name was not immediately available. He will be issued a criminal summons to report to court, said Capt. John Sifford.

The incident occurred about 4:30 p.m. Monday at 1025 Dunns Mountain Road. Officer Tester of the Granite Quarry-Faith Joint Police Authority told Rowan County Deputy Patrick Jones that several people showed up to the fire department seeking help. Tester said one boy had been taken to a hospital and the other boys’ parents were en route to meet the officers.

The deputy spoke with each teen and his parents to explain that the boys are not allowed on the property, which was clearly marked with no-trespassing signs and fenced in, Sifford said.

Officials charged four teenagers with misdemeanor trespassing:

• Jones Boykin Bruner, 16, of the 4300 block of Sharon Road.

• William Medley Mcland, 15, of the 200 block of Ridgewood Avenue.

• Matthew Adam Givens, 16, of the 2500 block of Sherwood Avenue.

• Kevin Fuller Moore, 16, of the 200 block of Perrin Road.

The teens will make their first court appearance July 14.
