TIGARD, OR (KPTV) -

A masked man with a large knife jumped through the window at a Tigard coffee kiosk and got away with cash.

Tigard police were called to Black Rock Coffee, 15290 S.W. Pacific Highway, at 5:50 p.m. Saturday. An employee said the man approached the shop and attempted to enter the drive-through window.

The worker pushed the suspect backward, but the man made a second attempt and was able to get inside, according to police.

Once inside, the man displayed a large knife and demanded money from the cash register. The suspect then took off through the same window and ran away.

A K9 team was called out, but the suspect got away. Police did find several dollar bills nearby, indicating the man may have run into a nearby neighborhood.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, 5'8" tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a black mask covering the lower portion of his face. He also wore baggy black pants and a black hooded sweatshirt.

If you know anything about this case, call Tigard police at 503-639-6168.
