Elderly Boynton Beach man attacked by two teens

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - Boynton Beach police are looking for two teens who robbed a 92-year-old man in the parking lot outside of his home on Monday afternoon.

The man told police that he had just gotten out of his car around 2:20 p.m. when another car sped into the parking lot on West Ocean Drive.

Two men exited the car and demanded his car keys.

Police said one of the robbers then struck the victim in the face with a handgun, causing him to fall to the pavement. The attacker then took the man’s wallet, which contained cash and credit cards.

Investigators said the teens then got back into the car and fled eastbound on West Ocean Drive.

The elderly man described his attackers as white men, about 17- to 19-years-old with short hair and a muscular build.

The victim could not provide the make or model of the suspect vehicle except that it was an older model four-door car.

The man suffered minor injuries to his face and wrist. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Midian Diaz at 561-732-8116 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS. Tips can also be submitted via our MyPD app and www.bbpd.org. You can remain anonymous.
