A teen was robbed by several men in Boca Raton. As reported by WPTV, the men stole the teenager’s phone at gunpoint.
On Sept. 27, local police responded to a reported robbery in the area of Verde Trail and Saint Andrews Grand Circle.
The victim, a teenage male, states that he was standing in a corner and on his phone when a white Ford Fusion pulled up next to him.
