PORTLAND – A girl, described as 13 to 15 years old, reportedly robbed a coffee stand at gunpoint Sunday in Southeast Portland.

Just after 9 a.m., the ‘young-looking’ female suspect described as 5 feet tall with a thin build and dark clothes used a handgun to rob the Mocha Express at 5111 SE Holgate Blvd, said Sgt. Pete Simpson with Portland police.

Iyesha Hillman, a coworker of the victim, said the robbery was especially unnerving because of the suspect's age. 

"I would be more scared with a little kid waving a gun at me. They're all scared and shaky and she could have accidentally... it's scary," Hillman said. 

Police, along with a K-9, searched the area but did not find a person matching the suspect’s description, Simpson said.
