Female robber targeting bikini-clad baristas

Two coffee stands in East County robbed at gunpoint within a week


For the second time in a week, a woman armed with a handgun has held up an East County coffee stand staffed by bikini-clad baristas.

Twin Perks Espresso in the 14500 block of Southeast Stark Street was robbed at 4:17 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, just six days after Gresham's Smokin' Hot Java-Bombshell Baristas in the 500 block of Northeast Division Street was held up at gunpoint on Oct. 24.

In both cases, coffee kiosks staffed with scantily clad baristas were targeted. The suspect is described as a woman in her 30s with a small build armed with a handgun. On Wednesday she was wearing a light-colored beanie, gray hoody, sunglasses, blue jeans and carrying a backpack.

On Wednesday, the suspect walked away westbound and may have gotten into a dark-colored vehicle. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect walked away westbound on foot and may have gotten into a dark-colored vehicle.

Anyone with information about the Wednesday robbery is asked to call detectives with the Portland Police Bureau at 503 823-0405.
