Salisbury man accused of human trafficking, kidnapping held on $1 million bond

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was arrested Monday on charges including sex trafficking, rape and kidnapping.

Cerdric Myron Bost, 43, was arrested after Salisbury Police Department officers responded to a report of a domestic assault in the 1100 block of Holmes Avenue.

The officers discovered that there were nine arrest warrants for Bost from Davie County.

The charges included misdemeanor ethnic intimidation and sexual battery; felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury; human trafficking with an adult victim; felony conspiracy; accessory to a felony before the fact; first-degree rape; first-degree forcible sex offense; and first-degree kidnapping.

Bost was found at the Holmes Avenue residence with minor lacerations to his face and blood on his clothing. According to reports, he was uncooperative with police officers and smelled strongly of alcohol.

When Rowan EMS responded, Bost was evaluated and started to sign a waiver to refuse treatment. He then relaxed to a near faint and was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center to be evaluated for head trauma.

Bost was treated and cleared for discharge. Officers then arrested him.

Magistrate Bretta Matthews issued a $1 million secured bond for the nine Davie County charges. He remains in the Rowan County jail.

Bost was also charged with misdemeanor assault on a female in the Holmes Avenue incident.

Bost’s court date in Davie County for the nine outstanding charges is set for Monday.
