SALISBURY – Two unnamed men are wanted for committing a robbery after entering an East Lafayette Street home and holding five victims at gunpoint.
Salisbury Police Lieutenant Lee Walker said the two suspects broke into the home at about 8 p.m. on Saturday.
One man was armed with a handgun and the other with a pump-action shotgun. They demanded money, taking about $40 from a wallet, marijuana and also stole a firearm before leaving the residence.
No one was injured. Walker said it was unlikely the robbery was random. One suspect wore a mask while the other was described as a tall Black man with a beard and neck tattoos.
