Boynton Beach police are looking for two men accused of carjacking a driver at a Chase Bank drive-thru ATM Monday night.

According to police, a 26-year-old man left work just before 11:30 p.m. and was at the ATM located on Congress Avenue near Old Boynton Road to deposit a paycheck.

The victim told officers two men approached his 2012 Honda Civic from the passenger's side. One of the men opened the door and pointed a gun at him.

Police say the gunman then got into the back seat of the car while the second man got into the front passenger seat, both demanding money.

The gunman reportedly pointed the gun at the man's head and demanded he withdraw money from the ATM, according to authorities.

Police say the two men took the victim's wallet and iPhone before forcing him out of the car. The armed man got into the driver's seat while the second man got into a gold Nissan Altima that had been waiting in the parking lot. Both men fled the scene.

The victim walked back to his job and notified police of the incident.

Investigators are working with the bank to identify the two men involved in the incident.

Police say the gunman is a black male in his early-to-mid 20s with gold teeth, clean shaven. He was seen wearing a black beanie cap, a gray t-shirt and black shorts.

The second man is also a black male and is believed to be in his late teens. He is also clean shaven, but his clothing description is unknown.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Jill Raftery at 561-732-8116 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS. You can remain anonymous. Tips can also be submitted via our MyPD app and www.bbpd.org.
