Boca Raton, FL – On Monday, November 14, just before 10:00 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of an armed robbery that occurred near 600 West Glades Road.
The victim, Jeffery Yarborough, told officers he was walking north on NW 13th Street heading to meet some friends in the area of 200 NW 20th Street. As he approached Glades Road, a small, white, older model, compact pick-up truck drove past and pulled over just ahead of him.
