♦ Another week of violent crime in the 9th ranked most dangerous city in North Carolina (many believe Salisbury deserves a higher ranking due to its crime statistics being “altered” or not recorded).  Because so much crime is being noted in the Bury, the RFP takes a triage approach reporting the more interesting crimes.  We simply can’t keep up with all the street beatings, building desecrations, indecent exposures, home invasions, break-ins, and some days even shootings.  We suggest you graze the Salisbury Police Bulletins and mugshot collections available on the RFP.

A Man Assaulted with a Knife at the West Innes Street BP

On Thursday Eric Damont Currie, 41, of Lilly Avenue in Salisbury was allegedly assaulted around 10 p.m. by a man with a knife at the B.P. filling station at 1901 W.

So far no arrests were made and no suspects named.
