The man went on to say he was sorry for doing this, but his kids need Christmas, according to detectives.
"All of his apologies and politeness are one thing, but it doesn't change the fact that he put these people in a terrifying situation," said Gina Carter with BSO.
The suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s with a light complexion and medium frame. He is about 5'8" and had a gold grill on his teeth and a mustache.
"This man may have felt bad about what he was doing, but he clearly knew what he was doing was very wrong," Carter said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
