BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Police tend to advise would-be victims from going all “Jack Bauer” on their potential attackers, but that didn't stop a man from from attacking his attacker in the parking lot of the Boca Raton Renaissance Hotel.
Here is the incredible story, in the words of the Boca Raton Police Department:
The victims, a male and his fiancé, told officers they had attended a function nearby and had just arrived in the hotel parking lot. They parked their car and were walking to the hotel when a male approached them, pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at them and demanded their money. The male victim punched the gun the suspect was holding and it flew out of his hand. As the suspect went to recover the gun, the victims ran inside the hotel. The suspect followed them to the hotel entrance, but did not enter. The suspect ran east through the parking lot. The victims were not injured.
The suspect is described as a black male, stocky build, about 5’10” to 6’1” tall, wearing dark clothing and had a blue or black bandana covering the lower portion of his face.
If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Ron Mello at (561) 620-6186 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
B/M, 5’10” to 6’1” tall
Wearing all dark clothing
Armed with black, semi-automatic handgun
