Brooklyn coffee-kiosk robber leaves empty-handed
Perhaps the smell of strong coffee gave the bandit the jitters, when he attempted to rob the Holgate Boulevard Dutch Bros. coffee drive-thru at 4455 S.E. 26th Avenue.
Portland Central Precinct officers responded to the 9-1-1 call at 8:53 p.m. on April 3, and learned that a suspect – possibly a white male, five feet eleven inches to six feet tall, with grey hair, and wearing a mask – had walked up to the drive-thru window and demanded money.
"The baristas fled the location," said Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley; so there was nobody to rob – "and the suspect left the location without obtaining any money."
Officers searched the neighborhood, but did not find anyone matching the suspect's description. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the PPB Robbery Detail detectives at 503/823-0405.
