Authorities are searching for a group of armed men who robbed and assaulted two women in Deerfield Beach last month.
The women were walking from Kahuna Bar & Grill on Northeast 21st Avenue just after 2 a.m. on April 29 when two men jumped out of a car and demanded their belongings at gunpoint, Broward Sheriff’s Office officials said.
One of the robbers grabbed one of the women by the wrist and pushed her to the ground. She was able to get up and run with her belongings, officials said.
The second woman wasn’t able to run, and the thieves grabbed her by her hair, pulled her to the ground and stole her backpack that contained cash, her phone and personal items.
One of the suspects was caught on camera a short time later at a gas station in Hollywood, authorities said.
Authorities said there were four suspects in total and all were in their late teens or early 20s. They drove a green four-door car.
