Canada Global (Web News) A man who attempted to drag a barista through a drive-thru window in order to kidnap her was apprehended by police in Washington.
On Monday, just after 5 a.m., a bungled abduction took place at a Beankini Espresso store. The Auburn, Washington, police department tweeted a video of the incident.
The attacker, who has not been officially recognised, is seen in the video pulling up to the drive-thru window to pay for his order in a dark-colored Chevy Silverado. The customer grabs the barista’s wrist and pulls her forward as she reaches out of the window to give the driver payment.
She manages to escape his hold, but not before he makes an effort to bind her wrists using what the police described as a “looped zip-tie device.”
The attacker taps on the drive-thru window glass as the barista closes it before speeding away.
On Tuesday, after receiving “huge support from the community,” a suspect who had the word “Chevrolet” tattooed on his left forearm was apprehended, according to police.
Kolby Crossley, a spokesman for the Auburn Police Department, stated that the barista was working alone when the attack occurred.
“They are in dangerous situations since they typically control such areas by themselves in the early morning while it is still dark. However, the barista did a fantastic job of defending herself and repelling the intruder, according to Crossley, as quoted by the local media site KIRO 7.
In the upcoming days, according to Crossley, authorities will make additional details regarding the incident public.
