Boca Raton Police Investigate Strong Arm Robbery
Boca Raton, FL Investigators from the Boca Raton Police Services Department are investigating a strong arm robbery that occurred shortly after 4:00 pm Tuesday. The victim said she and her husband were getting out of their car in the east parking lot at 650 West Glades Road and walking toward an office building when a Hispanic male came up from behind and pulled her purse from her left hand. The suspect didn't get her purse on the first attempt, but did the second time.
According to the victim, the male suspect took off running east through the parking lot, ran across Meadows Road and got into a black four door mid-sized car, possibly a late 90's or early 2000 model Honda with tinted windows. The vehicle left north on Meadows Road towards Glades Road.
A witness who wanted to remain anonymous told investigators that a Hispanic male came up to him earlier and asked for money. This witness and the victim provided the same suspect description of the suspect. They described him as a Hispanic male, wearing a white t-shirt, dark pants or long shorts and a black baseball cap turned around.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Detective John Moran at 561-338-1315 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS
