NEW: High-speed chase from Boynton to West Palm ends in charges for teens


Three South Florida teens were arrested Sunday after they stole a car, robbed a man and threatened his life with a gun, Boynton Beach police say.

Authorities say Macken Mitulien, Aaron Louis, both 18 and originally from Fort Lauderdale, and a 16-year-old male were arrested after a high-speed chase up Federal Highway and Interstate 95 ended near CityPlace in West  Palm Beach.

Both Mitulien and Louis are being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bond. Both face charges of robbery with a firearm and resisting officers without violence.

Mitulien also faces a charge of trespassing and had an active warrant for burglary and grand theft. Louis also faces charges of grand theft auto and fleeing from police and had an active warrant for burglary. The Post does not name juveniles unless they are charged as adults.

Police said Mitulien, Louis and the 16-year-old were in a red Nissan parked near the gate of Bermuda Cay apartments at Woolbright Road and Federal Highway when a resident arrived outside just after 3 a.m. without his pass.

The three of them approached him and asked, “Do you party? We have weed,” according to the victim’s statement to Boynton Beach police.

The victim initially declined, but the teens repeatedly asked and invited him into their car, according to the report. They let the victim try their “weed pen,” a vaporizer with THC oil in it. The victim told police that as he inhaled, Mitulien pointed a handgun at him and demanded money.

The victim tried to leave the car with his backpack, but the 16-year-old grabbed the bag from him, according to the report. He said he then got out of the car and the others followed.

The teens continued to demand the victim’s money, saying “run your pockets,” according to the report. Police said Mitulien held a gun at the victim while the others encouraged him to shoot.

The three then got back into the car and tried to leave Bermuda Cay through the gate, but the victim stood in front of the sensor to prevent them from leaving, according to the report.

Mitulien then allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and threatened to shoot him if he did not move.

The victim said he believed the gun may have been fake because it looked plastic, according to the report.

The car then exited through the secondary gate and fled north on Federal Highway, over to Hypoluxo Road and onto I-95. Authorities ran the license plate through a state database and found the car had been stolen out of Broward County.

Police said they chased the teens at high speeds before the teens abandoned the car at Rosemary Avenue and Okeechobee Boulevard, near CityPlace. The three tried to flee on foot but were detained, according to the report.
