A Wicomico County judge sentenced a 17-year-old to more than a decade of incarceration in connection with a 2019 armed robbery at a Salisbury home.

The Wicomico County state’s attorney’s office said the juvenile pleaded guilty to armed robbery, firearm use in a violent crime and first-degree assault. A judge gave the boy a 45-year sentence with all but 15 years suspended.

The teen forced his way into a Hammond Street home Nov. 28, 2019, while two residents, a man and a woman, were in the home. The woman tried to lock the juvenile in a bedroom, when the boy pointed a gun at her and threatened to shoot if she did not get out of his way, according to prosecutors.

The woman then fled the home and heard a gunshot not long after. The juvenile confronted the male resident upstairs, prosecutors said, demanding the man hand over “everything that (he) had” and pointed the gun at him.
