Armed Man Robs Boca Raton AT&T Store At Gunpoint

attlogoBOCA RATON, FL ( — 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.

The suspect is described as a black male, 25 to 30 years old, between 6’ and 6’2” tall, with a muscular build. The suspect was wearing a long sleeved grey sweatshirt, jeans and white sneakers. He had short, cropped hair and a black bandana covering his face.

If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Scott Hanley at (561) 338-1344 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
