Boca Raton, FL – Detectives from the Boca Raton Police Services Department are investigating an armed robbery which occurred in the Palmetto Park Square Plaza on Palmetto Park Road around 2:00 pm this afternoon.
The victim was loading shopping bags into her car south of the Kmart in the parking lot when she was approached by a black male who pointed a handgun at her and forcibly took her purse. The suspect was last seen fleeing west through the parking lot.
The suspect is described as a short black male, 5’8”-5’10”, 170 pounds, baggy pants, wearing a blue baseball cap and a black polo shirt with an emblem on the left pocket over a white t-shirt and dark shoes. He also had a bandage on his left hand. The suspect used the victim’s credit card at a Mobil gas station on Glades Road west of the Turnpike shortly after the robbery. The suspect was wearing the same pants and shoes but was wearing a tank top instead of a polo shirt. He was seen leaving in a green midsize SUV with tinted windows.
