When the victim was outside of the SUV at the Royal Farms, the couple sped off, police said.  They were last seen driving toward the beach on Columbia Avenue.

The stolen Suburban had three fishing poles attached to the roof, a rear lift gate, chrome bumpers and small dents to the rear driver’s side door and front bumper.
