Bikini baristas robbed at Smokin' Hot Java

by: OUTLOOK PHOTO: LISA K. ANDERSON - Smokin Hot Java is a coffee stand south of Gresham High School that was robbed Thursday.The bikini-clad baristas of Smokin’ Hot Java closed their black and pink coffee stand early Thursday afternoon after an unidentified woman robbed the Gresham coffee stand at gunpoint.

Displaying a black semi-automatic handgun just after 1 p.m., the robber demanded money from the register before running westbound on Division Street with an undisclosed amount of cash, said Gresham Police Detective John Rasmussen.

As a precautionary measure, Gresham High School initiated a lock-in because the suspect fled in the direction of the school from the stand at 555 N.E. Division St. The lockdown ended about 20 minutes later.

The robber is described as a slender white female in her late 30s, 5-foot-3 inches tall, with her hair in a bun. She was last seen wearing a light colored zip-up jacket, over-sized blue “scrub-type” pants, a black baseball hat and fingerless gloves. She was carrying a dark-colored bag.

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call the Gresham Police tip line at 503-618-2719 or 1-888-989-3505.
