SALISBURY – Maryland State Police arrested and charged a man  Tuesday with assault and weapon charges involving juvenile victims last month in Wicomico County.

The suspect, Cameron Joseph Calvert, 33, of Salisbury, is charged with first- and second-degree assault, the use of a firearm in a felony, illegal possession of a handgun, illegal possession of a handgun in a vehicle and reckless endangerment, police said. Calvert is being held without bond at the Wicomico County Detention Center.

Shortly after 7 p.m. on July 30, troopers from the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack with investigators from Criminal Enforcement Division responded to the 300-block of Brewington Drive in reference to a first-degree assault with a firearm. According to a preliminary investigation, two juveniles reported finding money while traveling north on Emerson Road, police said.

A short time later, the victims returned to the location when a man, later identified as Calvert, who was armed with a handgun, approached them, police said. He demanded the suspects return the money to him. The victims told investigators that Calvert also robbed them of a cellphone, money and additional items before driving away, police said.

Further investigation identified Calvert as a suspect in the case. Earlier this week, investigators from the Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Division Eastern Region and members of the MSP STATE Team served a search and seizure warrant at Calvert’s residence, police said.Calvert was placed under arrest and transported to the Salisbury Barrack for processing before being taken before a Wicomico County District Court Commissioner, police said.

The case remains under investigation.
