TIGARD, Ore. -- For the second time in less than two weeks an armed man forced his way into a Tigard coffee stand and robbed the barista.

The suspect crawled through the drive-thru window of the Black Rock Coffee Bar on Highway 99-W around 7:30 Wednesday night, according to Jim Wolf with Tigard Police.

The man then pulled out a gun and demanded cash, Wolf said. After the barista handed it to him he ran away.

Late last month a barista at the same place was robbed at knifepoint in a similar manner.

Police said the two crimes appear to be related.

The suspect was described as a man in his 20s, about 5-foot-8, with a stocky build. He was wearing black pants and a black sweatshirt.

Anyone with information was asked to call Tigard police at (503) 639-6168.
