Everett, WA: The Everett Police Department is investigating a robbery of a local espresso stand.
On November 13, 2012, just before 6:30 a.m., a barista at Steamers Espresso (1921 100th St SE) observed a white male approach the stand on foot. When she asked the man for his order, he displayed a pocket knife and demanded money. Initially, the barista refused and tried closing the window but the man climbed into the stand. When the barista refused to open the cash register, the man stated he was “desperate” and threatened to stab her. At that point the barista opened the cash register and the man grabbed about $200 before jumping out the window and running away.
After the man left, the barista called 911. Officers were dispatched to the area but did not find the male.
The barista was not injured.
The male is described as white, in his mid-20’s, around 5’9” tall and very thin. He was wearing a green beanie hat, dark jacket, blue jeans and white sneakers.
The Everett Police Department would like anyone who can identify this man or has information about this robbery to call 911, the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
