The suspect male entered the coffee stand through the entrance/exit door. Once inside the coffee stand the suspect male ordered the two female employees to the ground and stated "this is a robbery, I have a gun." No weapon was displayed as the suspect had a black shirt over his right hand and was pointing it toward the female employees. The suspect attempted to open the cash register, but was unsuccessful. He then took an unknown amount of cash from the tip container/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here. (Coeur d'Alene police photo)
