Man Charged With Threatening Woman With Gun

A Salisbury man is charged with threatening a woman with a gun.

According to Maryland State Police, police at the Salisbury Barrack received a call late Wednesday night about a man who struck a woman with his fist and pointed a gun at her head during an argument. Troopers arrived at East College Avenue, but the suspect and the victim were gone. A loaded and cocked handgun was found in the grass behind a church.

Further searching led to the discovery of 19-year-old Kwelli Green and the woman, both of whom were hiding in bushes. Green is charged with assault, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, possession of a firearm while under 21 years of age, and drug charges.

State Police said a search of Green turned up suspected crack cocaine and less than ten grams of suspected marijuana.
