♦ According to Salisbury Police sources three men, identified as Laquinton Antwan Martin, 22, of Lawndale Drive, Salisbury, Kishawn Tyrese Martin, 17, of Lawndale Drive, Salisbury, and Daquan Coleman, 19, of N. Salisbury Avenue, China Grove were arrested Thursday morning at an apartment Pearl Street for an alleged armed home invasion robbery at 312 Pearl Street in Salisbury at around 5:30 p.m.. There the three men allegedly brandished a shotgun as they shoved their way past a screen door into the apartment at 312 Pearl Street and demanded the 7 victims give up their money, cellphones, and wallets. The three alleged robbers, with their faces covered, padded down the 7 victims and helped themselves to $100 in cash, a $15 wallet, and 9 cellphones (valued at $590). No injuries were reported.
The three robbers quickly fled the apartment to a property across the street. One of the victims reported the suspects flight to arriving officers and provided one of the suspects nicknames. The house where the robbers were hold up was quickly surrounded and a perimeter was set up. The trio soon emerged, offered no resistance, were handcuffed, and take into custody.
All the valuables that were stolen were returned after a K-9 located them in an area behind a house across the street.
