JUST IN: Boynton police probe armed carjacking at Chase Bank ATM


A 26-year-old man was held at gunpoint Tuesday night at an ATM on North Congress Avenue, city police said. The suspects, two men, reportedly took off with his car, wallet and iPhone.

The man was at the drive-thru ATM at about 11:30 p.m. at Chase Bank north of Old Boynton Road depositing his paycheck when the two men approached his silver 2012 Honda Civic and pointed a gun at him.

The gunman climbed into the backseat, held a gun to the driver’s head and demanded he withdraw money from the ATM. The second man was in the front passenger seat.

The gunman ordered the driver exit the car and hand over his wallet and iPhone. He then climbed into the driver’s seat and the other man exited the front passenger seat and climbed into a gold Nissan Altima waiting in the lot. Both fled.

The victim walked to the restaurant where he works and called police.

Detectives are working to obtain surveillance footage of the robbery. The gunman is described as a man in his early-to-mid-20’s with gold teeth and no facial hair. He reportedly was wearing a black beanie cap, a gray T-shirt and black shorts. The second suspect is described as a male in his late teens, who also is clean shaven, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Jill Raftery at 561-732-8116 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted via the Boynton Beach Police Department’s MyPD app and at www.bbpd.org.
