SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police are searching for the man responsible for robbing an espresso stand in northwest Spokane Tuesday night. 

It happened just after 6:30pm at a stand in the 2100 block of W. Northwest Blvd. Police say a man wearing dark clothing with a mask covering his face walked up to the stand, pulled out a gun and demanded money. The barista working gave the man money and he ran off. 

Police arrived a short time later and set up a perimeter in the area to try and find the suspect. A K-9 Unit was called in to track, but the suspect was not found. 

Lt. Sprague with the Spokane Police Department said the suspect was white, and about six feet tall. Officers are looking at the possibility that this robbery is related to another espresso stand robbery that happened Monday morning in the same area. 

Lt. Sprague also said this was the second armed robbery on Tuesday. Just before the robbery at Jitterz Java, a delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint in the E. South Riverton area. Officers don't think these two incidents are related as of right now, but that suspect is still on the loose.
