Police say a barista was cleaning up the stand inside, when a man approached the window, pointed a gun at her face and demanded cash.
“Chances are he lives in the area. He’s associated with folks in the area. And it’s just convenient and close. And usually when somebody’s going to do a robbery, they’re going to have a getaway plan. They’re going to have someplace to go. So, they can’t get caught because police are on the way,” said Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau.
Police say the suspect is a white male in his early 20′s and somewhere between 5’5″ to 5’8.” He was last seen wearing a black jacket with the hood up and a dark-colored cover for his face.
“Sad, sad that somebody would resort to not so much taking the money, but threatening a young person or anybody who is working,” said Bad Ass Coffee co-owner Sheila Baker.
Bad Ass Coffee plans to install surveillance cameras. If you have any information about this robbery incident, you’re encouraged to contact the Medford Police Department.
