Police: Man wearing this hoodie, ski mask robs coffee stand
JUNCTION CITY, Ore. -- Police are still looking for a man they say robbed a drive-thru coffee shop in Junction City at gunpoint Sunday morning, officials said.
Witnesses told police that at around 9:45 a.m. Sunday a man wearing a ski mask walked up to Nina's Pony Espresso at 17th Ave. and Hwy 99E, pointed a black pistol at the baristas and demanded money.
Chief Mark Chase told KVAL News that the man ran toward the railroad tracks and a nearby wooded area with money from the coffee stand.
"We don't know who it is but experience tells me that it is probably somebody that has been involved in that kinda stuff before because you don't just all of the sudden start doing robberies," Chase said.
They described the man as around 5'11" to 6' tall with a thin build and a deep voice. He was wearing a yellow striped ski mask, hooded sweatshirt, dark sunglasses and black gloves at the time of the robbery, so police don't know the man's race.
After searching the area with a K-9 unit, officers found the sweatshirt (see the photo) that witnesses say the man wore during the robbery next to the train tracks at 16th Street.
Junction City Police ask anyone with information on the robbery or the suspect's whereabouts to call 541-998-1245.
This is a developing story, updates will be posted when more information is available.
