Police: Men wanted for Lake Worth robbery

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is asking the public to help identify two men wanted for a Dec. 26 robbery in Lake Worth.

Deputies say two armed men approached the victim, who was seated in his car at the east end of Vermont Avenue, and demanded his property.

One of the men pistol-whipped the victim with a handgun. Both men then took off in a tan-colored Lexus SUV, equipped with a roof rack.

Deputies describe one of the robbers as a black-haired man in his early 20s, standing 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds. He has a tattoo of "561" on his right arm and a Ralph Lauren "Polo" logo on one of his forearms.

His accomplice, also in his early 20s, stood 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds with short, black hair. At the time of the robbery he wore green shorts and a light-colored shirt.

The sheriff's office asks that anyone with information call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-8477.
