TD Bank robbed in Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Boca Raton police are investigating a robbery that occurred Thursday evening at a TD Bank.

Officers said at about 6 p.m., police arrived at the bank, located at 2301 North Federal Highway.

Tellers said a Hispanic man handed the teller a note, which indicated he had a weapon, and demanded cash.

The teller gave the suspect an undetermined amount of cash, which the suspect put into a black carrier, possibly an accordion-type file case. The robber then left the bank and walked south through the parking lot.

No one was injured and the thief never displayed a weapon, said police.

The robber is described as in his mid to late 30s, about 5 feet 4 inches, weighing 150 pounds, with brown eyes and a clean shaven face.

The thief was wearing a long-sleeve black shirt with a short sleeve grey shirt over it, brown pants, a beige baseball cap with red on the bill and "FL" printed in red on the front.

According to a Spanish-speaking teller, the man spoke English with no accent, but also spoke Spanish with a Puerto Rican accent.

Officer said the same man may have also robbed a Chase Bank in Cocoa, Fla., on Dec. 4.
