SALISBURY — A Little Caesars manager was cut during an armed robbery at the restaurant Friday morning, but he is expected to be fine, Salisbury Police Chief Jerry Stokes said.

The manager was opening the store just before 9 a.m. when a white man believed to be in his 20s and wearing dark clothing approached him.

The man showed a knife and forced the manager into the restaurant and asked him to give him access to money.

The manager was cut on the arm, but his injuries are not life-threatening, Stokes said. He was taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center by ambulance.

The suspect left on foot. Police used a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office K-9 to search the area. The suspect has not been apprehended.

Police received the call at 8:43 a.m. The restaurant is at 2143 Statesville Blvd.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245.
