Robbers shoot, climb in windows as Yakima barista tries to bail

YAKIMA (AP) — A Yakima barista heard two shots fired as she climbed out a drive-up window, trying to escape an armed robber climbing in another window.

Police say the 22-year-old woman was not hurt in the robbery early Tuesday at the Grizzly Espresso, but she was stopped by a second robber who forced her back inside.

The two robbers cleaned out the till and her purse and fled in her car.

Police spotted the stolen car about two hours later and arrested two suspects after a short chase and crash.

One suspect was injured and treated at a hospital. Both suspects are being held for investigation of robbery, assault and kidnapping.
