SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was robbed at gunpoint early Sunday morning after he withdrew hundreds of dollars from a convenience store ATM and bought lottery tickets, said Police Spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

The man told the police he went to the Circle K convenience store, located at 1015 E. Innes St., bought a couple of lottery tickets and withdrew $500 from the ATM inside the store. He went to the bus stop around 3:30 a.m. in the 400 block of South Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.

A man put a gun to the back of the victim’s head and said, “Give me your wallet,” Walker said.

The suspect took the wallet, removed the money and lottery tickets and ran away from the area.

According to the victim, the suspect appeared to be a black male, 6 feet tall and 200-plus pounds. The man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a red ski mask covering his face.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
