LAUDERDALE LAKES (FOX 13) - Sheriff's deputies in Florida are searching for three teens accused of following a woman into and out of a Walmart store before pointing a gun at her and demanding her car keys.
The SunSentinel reports the teens fled so abruptly that they nearly struck the 81-year-old victim with her car.
The incident was captured on surveillance video and Broward Sheriff's Office officials are asking anyone who recognizes the teens to contact investigators.
“All three robbers appear to be teenagers with dark complexions and medium builds. They each wore a dark blue knit cap, sandals with socks and athletic attire,” the sheriff’s office noted.
The footage shows Albina Curki walking to her 2015 Toyota on Monday evening. The teens followed her, with two flanking her and the third approaching her from the front.
Curik told the newspaper she thought the teen was joking. She asked him to repeat his demand, but he snatched the keys. "It was scary and shocking," she said.
