SALISBURY — Salisbury police say a local teenager faces felony robbery charges after she was identified as a suspect in the August robbery of a pizza delivery man at a Pearl Street apartment.

Police charged J’Lexis Zikeria Chambers, 19, of 101 Pearl St. with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon and misdemeanor failure to appear or comply.

A Domino’s Pizza delivery man went to an apartment at 132 Pearl St. on Aug. 18 where someone had ordered a pizza. When he knocked on the door, someone told him no one at the address placed an order.

The driver returned to his car, and before he could close the door, he felt something pointed in his side.

A woman armed with a gun was pointing it at the delivery man and told him to give her all his money. When the driver heard a gun about to be fired, he pulled out his own gun and fired first.

Police said Chambers showed up at the hospital with a gunshot wound to her leg.

Chambers was arrested Saturday after officers served an arrest warrant at her home. She remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $22,000 secured bond.
