GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

Gresham High School went into lock-in when a female suspect robbed the Smokin' Hot Java Bombshell Baristas coffee stand Thursday afternoon.

Gresham police officers searched the area and the high school, which is located on Main Avenue, went into lock-in mode as a precaution. The lock-in was lifted about 20 minutes later.

The suspect hasn't been arrested.

Police said she may displayed a black semi-automatic handgun during the robbery as she demanded cash from the register.

Once she took an undisclosed amount of cash, she ran westbound from 555 NE Division St., heading in the direction of the school.

Officers describe her as slender, white and in her 30s. She's between 5'3" and 5'4" tall and keeps her hair in a bun.

She was last seen wearing a light-colored zip-up jacket, oversized blue hospital-scrub-style pants, a black baseball hat and fingerless gloves. She carried a dark-colored bag.

Anyone with information on the woman's identity is asked to call 503-618-2719.
