BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the man shown here in a black t-shirt. Police say the thug roughed up two sisters — one 97 years old, the other 85 — outside the Publix at 9886 Glades Road. That’s the Publix at Glades and 441.
According to police, the two women were getting on a bus when the man came from behind and snatched their purses, forcing one of the women — in a wheelchair — and the other to fall over.
One of the women suffered two broken ribs.
If anyone knows who the thug is, please call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
