Victim reports stolen iPhone


Boca Raton, FL – On Saturday, March 30th, officers from the Boca Raton Police Services Department were dispatched to 600 NE 24th Street (Rutherford Park) regarding an unarmed robbery.


Upon arrival officers met with the victim, Charles Pennington, who advised he was sitting at the pavilion located through the second boardwalk entrance when a group of unknown males joined him.  One of the two suspects asked him for a cigarette.  When Pennington refused, one of the individuals became upset, so Pennington attempted to leave.


Before he could leave one of the two suspects struck him in the face with his fist.  Pennington said he fell to the ground and was beaten by both suspects, and added that one of the suspects then took his iPhone along with its Otter Box.  Both suspects took off and Pennington flagged down a passing car to call police.   Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective Ron Mello at 561-620-6186.


Pennington described the suspects as looking very similar to each other, maybe even twins.
