NEW: Lake Worth High student accused in robbery of pizza deliveryman


A Lake Worth High School student is being held without bond after he helped to rob a pizza deliveryman at gunpoint, according to a police report.

Jonathan Flores, 18, wasn’t difficult to find. Flores’ cellphone was used to order the pizza and the deliveryman recognized Flores from when they were both students at Park Vista High School in suburban Boynton Beach, the report said.

The alleged robbery took place March 10 and included four other males, the report said.

The alleged victim could not find the address to make the delivery and called Flores, who directed him to the 4800 block of Sarafica Drive, in an unincorporated pocket west of Congress Avenue between Atlantis and Palm Springs.

Flores and a second male approached the deliveryman and acted as if they were looking for money to pay, the report said. Three other males then approached the victim and one pulled out a gun.

“Give me the money,” the gun-toting robber told the victim, according to the report. “Give me all you got.”

The deliveryman handed over $20 and Flores grabbed the pizza before the five robbers fled on foot, the report said.

The victim told the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office that he had attended high school with Flores three years ago. He also found Flores’ Facebook page and alerted deputies.

County school officials informed PBSO that Flores enrolled at Lake Worth High on March 10, but hadn’t attended any classes.

Deputies arrested Flores on Monday at his home in the 3000 block of Congress Park Drive, just south of the robbery site. Flores said his friends came up with the idea to rob the deliveryman and that one of them had used his cellphone, the report said. Flores refused to name his alleged accomplices “out of fear,” the report said.

Flores said he recognized the deliveryman and was certain police would come looking for him eventually, the report said.

Flores is facing a charge of robbery with a weapon.

“We’ve had delivery people killed in these scenarios,” an assistant state attorney said Tuesday in court before a judge ordered the teen be held without bond.
