BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A major investigation is underway in Boca Raton following a bank robbery late Thursday at the TD Bank at 2301 North Federal Highway.
Details of the robbery were released Friday.
From Boca Raton Police:
Arriving officers met with the tellers who told them that a Hispanic male entered the bank and approached the teller. The suspect handed the teller a note, which indicated he had a weapon, and demanded cash. The teller gave the suspect an undetermined amount of cash, which the suspect put into a black carrier, possibly an accordion type file case. The suspect then left the bank and walked south through the parking lot. No one was injured and the suspect never displayed a weapon.
The suspect is described as in his mid to late 30’s, approximately 5’4” tall, weighing 150 pounds, with brown eyes and a clean shaven face. The suspect was wearing a long sleeve black shirt with a short sleeve grey shirt over it, brown pants, a beige baseball cap with red on the bill and “FL” printed in red on the front. According to a Spanish speaking teller, the suspect spoke English with no accent, but also spoke Spanish with a Puerto Rican accent.
The suspect may have also committed a robbery at a Chase Bank in Cocoa on Wednesday, December 4.
