♦ City-wide violence and armed robbery continues to spiral out of control in Salisbury.  It touched down Monday again in the City’s Fulton Heights section when Garrett Woodward, 16, of Salisbury, was forced to give up his Galaxy cellphone at gunpoint near the intersection of Mitchell Avenue and Crosby Street.  The robbery occurred around 10:43 p.m.  Luckily no one was injured during the incident.

The intersection of Mitchell Avenue and Crosby Streets in Salisbury:

Fulton Heights, like other areas of the city, has suffered from a rash of break-ins, street muggings, robberies, vandalism, and panhandlers knocking on doors all hours of the day.  The crime is spurring many to put their homes up for sale and move out.  The Salisbury Police are largely understaffed, underpaid, and depend now on the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office to prop them up.

At this time the Salisbury Police have no suspects and have not released a description of the armed robber.

If anyone has any information about this robbery or the robber please call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
