News In Salem

In the early morning hours of February 23, Salem Police Officers responded to the 200 block of East Main Street in reference to an armed robbery. Upon investigation, they determined that a female employee of a Main Street restaurant was heading to her vehicle when she was approached and threatened at knife point by a white male suspect.

As one of the female victim’s fellow employees was exiting the establishment, he was alerted to the situation. When he approached his co-worker, the suspect fled the scene on foot. The victim was able to provide a detailed description of her assailant to Salem Police, who immediately searched the area and soon arrested 32-year-old Adam Chitwood of Roanoke.

Chitwood has been charged with armed robbery and he is currently being held in the Salem/Roanoke County jail without bond. The investigation into the incident is still active.
