Couple Robbed At Gunpoint In West Boca Raton

PoliceTapeBOCA RATON, FL ( — A West Boca Raton couple was robbed at gunpoint by a man with a semi-automatic gun in an elevator at the “Condos of Boca Barwood” at 23249 Barwood Lane.

Investigators tell that the male/female couple — who we are not identifying — walked into an elevator when a black man with a semi-automatic gun approached and demanded all of their belongings. The suspect asked for the woman’s purse which she did not have, but the man quickly offered up the $1 in his pocket and keys to a 2010 gray Lincoln Crossfire SUV.

The gunman took the dollar but dropped it as he fled the scene, ultimately taking the SUV and speeding from the area.

Police recovered the dollar and are analyzing it for fingerprints.

The SUV has not been recovered. There are apparently no surveillance cameras near the scene of the attack.
