Man, 66, Carjacked At Gunpoint At Boynton Beach Mall


Authorities say a 66-year-old man was carjacked at gunpoint Tuesday night in the parking lot of the Boynton Beach Mall.

According to a police report, the victim was sitting in his Toyota Camry outside of the Macy's store about 9:40 p.m. when two males, who appeared to be teenagers, opened the driver’s side door and pointed a gun at him.

Police said the thieves ordered the victim to get out of the car and then one of them drove out of the parking lot onto Congress Avenue.

Officers spotted the car in the eastbound lanes of Boynton Beach Boulevard at the Interstate 95 overpass. 

Police said the carjackers got out of the car and jumped the guardrail, running down the embankment and across the railroad tracks. 

Police officers, K-9 units and the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office helicopter searched for the pair, but could not find them.

The carjackers remain at large. They are described as being black males, about 16- to 18-years-old. One of the thieves had medium length dreadlocks, police said.

The Camry has since been returned to the victim, who was not injured. 

Anyone with information about the carjacking is asked to call Detective Nicole Loshelder at 561-732-8116 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS. 

Tipsters may remain anonymous.
