Man stuffs girlfriend inside bag to sneak her into halfway house

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - Date night in Boca Raton took an unusual twist last Friday night.

Boca Raton police say that around 5:20 p.m., they received a call from a man walking his dog along SW 2nd Avenue.

The man, according to police, says there was a suspicious incident in the Walgreens parking lot.

The witness says he saw a large man hunched over a large duffel bag.

The witness told police the man stated speaking to the duffel bag then started to put it inside a Volkswagen when a woman's arm poked out of the bag.

Investigators say the man then pushed the arm back into the bag before putting it in the rear passenger compartment and driving away.

Around 10:30 p.m., police found the suspicious vehicle and eventually the driver.

He told police he was staying at the Boca House, a sober living halfway house for men, and they did not allow visitors to stay overnight.

Police say the man put his girlfriend in a large hockey equipment bag, so he could take her into his apartment.

The girlfriend told police she voluntarily got into the bag.

Police concluded no laws were broken, and the man and his girlfriend were allowed to leave.
