Four arrested for robbery and assault at Salisbury mall
Four people have been arrested in connection to the robbery and assault of a 56-year-old woman in the parking lot of the Centre at Salisbury.
24-year-old Raymer Antoine Beulah, 22-year-old Michael Tyrone Jackson, 20-year-old Karen Michele Deveerdt and a 17-year-old female juvenile were arrested Friday evening.
The incident was first reported Wednesday evening. Officers from the Salisbury Police Department responded to the parking lot outside of the food court for a reported robbery and assault around 7:30 p.m.
The victim reportedly told police, two suspects approached her as she was entering her vehicle. One suspect allegedly pushed the victim, causing her to fall to the ground. While she was held to the ground, another suspect reportedly reached into the passenger compartment of the car and stole her purse.
Police say the suspects then fled the area on foot in an unknown direction. The victim was not injured and did not require medical attention.
Based on information gathered during the investigation, police say they were able to positively identify the four suspects. Search and seizure warrants were executed, which resulted in the collection of additional evidence related to the investigation.
Beulah, Jackson, Deveerdt and the juvenile female were arrested on the 1000-block of Adams Avenue. Beulah, Jackson and Deveerdt were transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center, where they await an initial appearance before a court commissioner.
The 17 year old female was released to her parents at the direction of the Department of Juvenile Services.
Salisbury Police Detectives were assisted by the members of the Capitol Area Regional Task Force, who assisted in the arrest of the four suspects.
Detectives are continuing the investigation and anyone with information is urged to contact the Salisbury Police Department (410) 548-3113 or Crime Solvers (410) 548-1776.
