SALISBURY, Md. - A Delaware man is accused of trying to rob a Salisbury motel. Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says on Monday, around 11:55 AM, a clerk at the Temple Hill Motel on South Salisbury Boulevard, was approached by Ricky Milton, 42, of Greenwood, who was wearing a hat and bandana, and demanded money from the clerk.

The clerk reportedly told Police that Milton was standing and holding his arm as if he was armed. According to the report, the clerk went into a back room, appearing to comply with Milton's demands, but quickly shut the door, and called 911. After this Milton apparently changed his mind and fled from the lobby. The clerk and another witness were reportedly able to describe the suspect's vehicle, which Deputies later caught up with on Route 13.

Authorities say Milton ignored all signals to stop, and led them on a chase, up 13 and through commercial parking lots, before he got out and tried to flee on foot, but was quickly taken into custody.

Milton was reportedly still wearing the clothes he had on during the robbery, and the gloves, hat, and bandana that the clerk described, were apparently in the vehicle. Police say Milton had a metal pole in his pants pocket, that the clerk could have thought was a weapon.

Milton is charged with armed robbery, resisting arrest, dangerous weapon, and flee and elude. He is being held at the Detention Center without bond.
