Salisbury man sentenced to 15 years for assault

1280 Trevion Townsend

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man will spend more than a decade behind bars for his role in a 2020 assault.

23-year-old Trevion Townsend was sentenced earlier this month to 15 years in the Division of Corrections for first degree assault, which he pled guilty to in October 2021.

On December 6, 2020, Townsend and his co-defendant, J’Waun Peters, waited in their vehicle outside the victim’s residence to confront him about an ongoing dispute. When the victim arrived home, Peters handed a semi-automatic pistol to Townsend, who then got out of the vehicle and shot the victim. The victim survived.

Peters was convicted of first degree assault in October 2021 and was sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
