Jitterz Java robbed for second time in as many weeks

A masked man showed a gun and demanded money from employees at Jitterz Java on Northwest Boulevard in Spokane just before 8 p.m. today.

The man approached the window on foot but made his escape in a white, early-90s Suburban driven by a second man, said Spokane Police Lt. Craig Meidl. Both men are white. The man with the gun is described as being in his early to mid 20s, between 5’ 8” and 5’ 10” tall. He was wearing a black scarf over his face and a black jacket with its hood up, Meidl said.

Whether or not the gunman is the same man that robbed Jitterz Java on Feb. 18 is under investigation, Meidl said. “We’ll look at the video and compare that to last week’s,” he said.
