Armed man robs Juneau coffee stand

JUNEAU (AP) — A drive-up coffee stand near Juneau's airport was robbed by an armed man.

Juneau police say the man at about 10 a.m. Monday walked into the Heritage Coffee stand, demanded money, flashed a weapon and left with cash.

A 29-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were in the stand when it was robbed.

The Juneau Empire reports police responded within five minutes of a call reporting the incident but could not find a suspect.

Police spokeswoman Erann Kalwara says the suspect was a white man in his early to mid-20s. He was skinny, between 5-feet-8 inches and 6-feet-1-inch tall, with short, clean-cut black hair and a black goatee.

Police say he wore black, skinny jeans, a black sweatshirt, black gloves with yellow markings, black shoes and sunglasses.
