PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

For the second time in a week, a woman with a gun has robbed a local bikini barista coffee stand. It's unclear, however, if the crimes are connected.

Portland police said the suspect demanded money from an employee at Twin Perks Espresso, 14565 Southeast Stark Street, at 4:17 p.m. Wednesday.

After getting cash, she walked away and may have gotten into a dark-colored vehicle, according to witnesses.

The suspect is described as a white woman in her 30s with a small build. She was wearing a light-colored beanie, gray hoodie, sunglasses and blue jeans. She was carrying a gun and a backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 503-823-0405.

On Oct. 24, a woman with a similar deception robbed the Smokin' Hot Java Bombshell Baristas coffee stand in Gresham. Police have not said if the crimes are connected.

The two businesses are about five miles apart.
