HELL NIGHT: West Boca Woman Held At Gunpoint, Ordered To Drive


BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A woman was ordered into her West Boca Raton home, robbed, then forced into her car and held at gunpoint while she drove in a horrifying ordeal that has so far led to no arrests.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that the victim told depuites that she responded to a knock on the door of her home in Boca Ridge Glen — just west of 441 on Glades. The guest appeared to be “familiar” so she opened the door, But with the door opened, she realized she did not know the 200-pound man with short hair who was wearing a t-shirt.

He barged his way in.

According to a police report:

“The suspect asked the vitim to take him where the victim put away her prescription medication. So the victim took the suspect to her bedroom and directed the suspect to where the night stand was. The suspect opened the victim's night stand and took the victim's pills. The suspect took a bottle of Roxicodone and a bottle of Adderall. Once the suspect took the pills, he told the victim to go 'grab your purse and keys, we are going for a little ride.”

The victim, with no other option, did as she was told — grabbing her purse and her car keys. The victim was ordered to the driver's seat.

“When the victim turned on the engine to her vehicle, she looked to her right and saw the man pull something from his waist area and placed it on his right lap. When victim payed a bit more attention to the item on the suspect's lap, she noticed it was a silver gun,” according to the report. “At this time the victim stated she was terrified.”

Police say the victim was told to drive east on Glades Road, then left on Lyons Road, then right onto Yamato and eventually right onto Technology Way. The vehicle destination was in the 4900 block of Technology Way.

The suspect then pulled the gun from his lap and pointed it at the victim's face and demaned money. The victim gave the suspect $685 in cash and $340 in gift cards. The suspect fled and the victim retreated to an area CVS and called police.

BocaNewsNow.com is not naming the victim, however, she has been previously arrested in both Palm Beach and Broward Counties for laceny.
