A 30-year-old Riviera Beach woman was mugged on Nov. 30th but had a key piece of evidence to take to police: the attacker was none other than her ex-boyfriend, Leanord Farmington.
Police arrested Farmington on Dec. 3rd after the unnamed woman recognized his voice. â€œLeanord, why are you doing this?â€ she reported asking him during the mugging.
According to the police report, she was on her way to work which involved entering a secure gated area. Farmington pushed his way into the gate after her and ordered her to give him her bag.
After a brief verbal altercation, Farmington pushed her to the ground and ran off with her phone and wallet.
The couple had broken up only a month before.
Farmington was not caught at the time, but was found on the same block just a few days later, robbing an attorneyâ€™s office in the early morning. After running from police and damaging two fences, he was found by a K-9 Unit.
He is currently being held without bail on charges of robbery, resisting an officer, and injuring a fence.
