SALISBURY — A man was pistol-whipped and his pay was stolen when he was approached while riding a bicycle on East Franklin Street on Saturday evening.

The Salisbury Police Department charged Bryon Anthony Anderson, 35, of the 2400 block of Running Brook Drive, with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Officials said the victim, a 45-year-old man, was approached about 6:40 p.m. Saturday while riding his bicycle in the 700 block of East Franklin Street. A white Honda Accord pulled up beside him and the driver, later identified as Anderson, told the man he’d been looking for him.

The victim was beaten with a pistol, and Anderson took $500 in cash from him, a police report said. The victim was able to give police Anderson’s name and a vehicle description. Police stopped Anderson’s vehicle on Marriott Circle.

Officers said the victim told them he had been paid the day before.

Anderson remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $2,500 secured bond.
