Man robbed at knifepoint for drugs and money

Boca Raton, FL On Thursday, June 9 at about 7:50 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a robbery that was occurring in front of 435 NE 20th Street. The caller, Eric Hill, said he heard yelling outside the front of his home and when he went outside, he saw a black male on top of a white male, with a knife lying next to them.

When officers arrived they spoke with the victim, David Shumway, and several witnesses. Shumway told officers he had been dropped off at McDonald's at 2000 N. Federal Highway by his friend Craig Andrews, who had just driven him to his doctor where he picked up his oxycodone pain medication. Shumway said he was walking to a friend's house, when suddenly a male attacked him and threatened him with a knife, demanding his medication and money. Shumway said he had met the suspect the day before, when he saw him with Andrews at a nearby gas station. Shumway told officers the suspect, later identified as Tanad Haji-Mohamed, punched and kicked him, and took some of his cash but not his pills. Haji-Mohamed ran off when Hill came out of his house and said he was calling police.

Shumway told Boca Raton officers Haji-Mohamed was staying at the Quality Inn, 2899 N. Federal Highway. Officers went to the Quality Inn, where they discovered Haji-Mohamed in room 260 with three other subjects, including Craig Andrews. Shumway and another witness identified Haji-Mohamed as the person who attacked Shumway.

Shumway sustained minor abrasions and lacerations, but refused medical treatment. Haji-Mohamed was arrested and charged with armed robbery, aggravated battery, and aggravated assault.
