Police: Greenville Teens Robbed Drivers Who Slowed Down For Playing Kids

Police say two separate drivers who slowed down because kids were playing in the street ended up getting held up at gunpoint by two teens.

Greenville police say 18-year-old Tyshum Montrell Salisbury of B's Barbecue Rd. in Greenville, and a 14 year old, whose name is not released because of his young age, are responsible for the crimes Friday evening.

Police say the incidents happened on B's Barbecue Rd. near Best Rd. at 5:45 p.m. Friday. Police say one driver was hit in the face when he told the teens he didn't have any money. The other driver who was held up did says he did give the robbers cash, and one hit him in the head with the handgun. Both victims were treated and released from the hospital.

Police say detectives received information that the suspects were at 2821-B Best Rd. Police surrounded the location and arrested the suspects.

Salisbury is due in Pitt County Court Monday.

    This is why we need for NC Senate Bill 928 to pass this year. Call Senator Basnight directly to get it back on track ASAP Refer to http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2009/Bills/Senate/PDF/S928v0.pdf, the Castle Doctrine Bill, appears to be bogged down. This bill was referred to three separate committees, the first being the House Judiciary I Committee. That committee is Chaired by anti-gun State Representative Deborah Ross (D-38), and she appears to be unwilling to set a date for a hearing. Please contact Representative Ross and urge her to allow this critical legislation—which received overwhelming, bi-partisan support in the Senate—to be heard. Please call Representative Ross at 919-733-5773 or e-mail her at Deborah.Ross@ncleg.net. Also, please call or email your State Representative and ask them to urge House leadership to bring SB 928 up for consideration. You can call your Representative at 919-733-7928.

    Its so obvious that this amanda character is someone trying to emulate ebonics. Why do you people even entertain that character.

    Blame parents, role models like Snoop Dogg, the videogame and tv babysitters, the thug videos on MTV and BET, 200 basketball shoes on welfare, free and reduced lunch for not working, the list goes on.

    The failure here is the parents. Not society, not the school not the police. Mothers and Fathers and poor souls like Amanda. Best thing is to execute people like this because the chances of changing thier behavior at this point is slim to none.

    Bully for you Wanda you hit the nail on the head. But Amanda is just one of the many. the government run education system isn't to blame for this, albeit they created this mess with years and years of feel good curriculum instead of education. But the large chunk of this needs to be blamed on society. My God people just look around us. The obsession of Pop Culture has done this, everybody doesn't need a education because everybody is going to be a sports idol, or celebrity of what kind or another. Kids today think,"We need no stinkin education we're going to be famous on Face-book or U tube or any other social networking web sites." America has been turned into a celebrity worshiping, jock sniffing culture who lives for the fame and the moment, instead of investing in themselves for the future.

    To Female Student, People are too easily offended these days. I would advise you to lock your doors as well. It is not a good idea to trust anyone anymore. Be safe and have a nice day.
