BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Media Release From Boca PD) — On Saturday, January 10 at about 8:10 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to an armed robbery and carjacking at the Chase Bank, 3901 North Federal Highway.

The victim told officers she was using the ATM when a male approached her from behind. The suspect was carrying a large hunting knife and demanded that she give him $500. The victim was eventually able to withdraw the money, which she handed to the suspect. The suspect then demanded her car keys, but told her she could remove any personal property before he took her car. The victim took her purse from her green Jeep Wrangler and the suspect drove away.

Officers had the victim’s Jeep entered into the State crime database as stolen and Boca Raton detectives interviewed the victim. The next day detectives received a call from a sergeant with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office who said they arrested the driver of the stolen Jeep, Duaine Knisely. Knisely told detectives that he spent the last week in Pompano Beach on a drug binge. Knisely also admitted to asking people for money at an ATM and taking the victim’s Jeep. He added that due to his level of drug intoxication, he could not recall many details.

Detectives charged Knisely with robbery with a deadly weapon and carjacking.
