Kwelli Green

The Maryland State Police have arrested Kwelli T. L. Green of Salisbury Maryland for holding a gun to a woman’s head, among other charges in Wicomico County, Maryland. 

Kwelli Green has been charged with first and second degree assault, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, possessing a firearm while under 21 yrs. of age, wear/carrying/transporting a firearm on their person, wear/carrying/transporting a loaded firearm on their person, and two drug charges. 

Shortly after 10:00 p.m. yesterday, a caller to the Salisbury Barrack reported a man had struck a woman with his fist and was pointing a gun at her head and arguing with her, in the 500-block of E. College Avenue, Salisbury.  The caller reported the suspect could be heard ‘counting down,’ and gave a description of the clothing worn by both individuals.

When troopers arrived on the scene, the suspect and victim were gone, but they found a loaded and cocked handgun in the grass behind a church where the original caller reported the two were standing. 

While troopers were continuing their search, additional information was received about two individuals hiding in the bushes in the 600-block of E. College Avenue.  Troopers responded and found both Kwelli Green and the female victim.  A search of Green led to the recovery of suspected crack cocaine and less than ten grams of suspected marijuana. 

Green was arrested and transported to the Salisbury Barrack.  He was later taken to the county central booking facility to await an initial appearance before a court commissioner. On Thursday, May 20, 2021, Green went before the court commissioner and was held without bond. He was then taken in front of the District Court of Maryland Judge for a bond review, at which point he was held without bond.
