BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The hunt is on for the man who police say robbed the AT&T store in Regency Court — off Yamato Road — at gunpoint Thursday afternoon. The man forced workers into a back room, ordered a safe opened, and made off with several phones.
It is unclear if the phones are trackable.
According to Boca Raton Police:
Store employees told officers that a male entered the store through the main entrance, pointed a silver semi-automatic handgun at them, and escorted them to the rear storage area of the store. Once in the back, the male had the employees put the phones stored in the safe into a bag he brought with him. The suspect then exited the store through the back door and left in a small, black SUV. No one was injured.
