Salisbury man arrested for robbery in Cleveland

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man faces robbery charges in the town of Cleveland in connection with an April burglary.

Cleveland Police on Wednesday arrested Robert Maurice Singletary, 30, for robbery with firearms or other dangerous weapons and assault inflicting serious bodily injury.

The robbery occurred April 28, when Singletary allegedly approached the victim’s vehicle at Dollar General at 11801 Statesville Blvd. As Singletary moved toward the vehicle, the victim, who lives in Statesville, exited on the passenger’s side and was assaulted by a man who hasn’t been identified or arrested. Both suspects fled the scene in the same vehicle.
