SALISBURY — Police say a local man who was robbed for the second time in a month believes one man is responsible for the crimes.

The man was held at gunpoint and cash was taken.

The most recent robbery was at 3:30 a.m. Friday in the 1700 block of North Long Street. The victim told police he was “tricked” into opening his front door. When he opened the door, a black man wearing a ski mask pointed a gun at him.

The suspect is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds, and between 20 and 22 years old. The suspect took $116 and the victim’s cellphone, which was tracked behind 932 Cedar St. in East Spencer.

Salisbury police officers searched the area with a police dog and found the cellphone. The suspect was not located.

Police officials said in the first robbery, on Oct. 3, the suspect knocked on the door. The robber took $629 but displayed no weapon.
