Boca Raton police are investigating a strong-arm robbery that occurred shortly about 4 p.m. Tuesday in the 600 block of West Glades Road.
The victim told police she and her husband were getting out of their car in a parking lot and walking toward an office building when a man came up from behind and pulled her purse from her left hand. The suspect didn’t get her purse on the first attempt, but did the second time, police said.
According to the victim, the robber took off running east through the parking lot, ran across Meadows Road and got into a black, four-door mid-sized car, possibly a late ’90s or early 2000 model Honda with tinted windows. The car left north on Meadows Road toward Glades Road.
Police ask anyone with any information to call Detective John Moran or if you’d like to stay anonymous and be eligible for up to $1,000 REWARD call Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
