March 13, 2014: Arrest Made in Kidnapping and Rape Case

On March 13, 2014 Michael Dale Salisbury, 29 years old of Charleston, was arrested for kidnapping and 2nd degree sexual assault.  The warrant was obtained earlier in the day following an investigation.  The crime occurred on March 6, 2014. 


On Thursday evening a BOLO (be on the lookout) was issued for Mr. Salisbury while detectives were searching for him to make the arrest.  He was located by officers with the Dunbar Police Department.  They detained him until detectives with the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office arrived a few moments later.  They arrested Mr. Salisbury.


Though much of the complaint is probably unsuitable for broadcast or print, I have attached the public document for convenience, so each journalist can make the determination of what is appropriate for their stories. 


Mr. Salisbury is currently being fingerprinted, and will be arraigned at approximately 10:30 p.m.  The charges against Mr. Salisbury are merely accusations.  He is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
