Annapolis man held in attempted break-in

31-year-old Annapolis man was arrested for attempting to break into a Parole Street hair salon after several neighbors heard someone banging on the business' rear door and then saw someone running from the scene.

Ronald Calvin Wilson of 22 Parole St. was charged with attempted breaking and entering and destruction of property. He was being held on $1,000 bond at the county detention center yesterday.

Debra Henriques, who lives above the Hair Chamber, told police she heard someone attempting to force the rear door open. She telephoned her neighbor, Charles Johnson, who

lives across the alley, to look out his side windows.

Mr. Johnson told police he heard the banging stop and saw a man running down the alley away from the rear door.

A few moments later, police en route to the scene saw a man matching the suspect's description enter 22 Parole St. Mr. Johnson later identified the man, Mr. Wilson, as the one he'd seen in the alley.
