On July 5 at 3:09 p.m. officers from Annapolis Police Department responded to the area of Skippers Lane and South Cherry Grove Avenue for a 12 year old girl reporting she had been abducted. The girl told police that she was walking in the area when a man pulled her into his vehicle, drove her to a nearby street, and attempted to assault her. The girl was able to exit the vehicle and run away. The girl was not injured.
The girl guided officers to the 1100 block of Belle Drive, where the vehicle was parked when she jumped out. The man’s vehicle was still parked there, but was unoccupied. Detectives identified the registered owner of the vehicle, Cordell Salisbury, 52, of Churchton, as the suspect in the abduction. The girl did not know Salisbury and Salisbury is not a registered sex offender.
Just after midnight on July 6 detectives arrested Salisbury in a home in the 100 block of Brightwater Dr. Salisbury was charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, 2nd degree assault, 4th degree sex offense, attempted 3rd degree sex offense, sexual solicitation of a minor, indecent exposure, and kidnapping a child under 16. Salisbury is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on a temporary commitment pending his hearing with the District Court Commissioner.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Charles Bealefeld at 410-268-9000 ext. 7299 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
