From the Eureka Police Department:

On October 25, 2020, at about 11:07 p.m., officers with the Eureka Police Department (EPD) responded to a coffee shop on the 400 block of N Street for the report of an armed robbery that had just occurred.

The employees told officers they were closing up the business when an unknown male entered through the backdoor, brandished a firearm, and demanded money. The male ultimately grabbed an employee’s purse from a shelf and fled on foot.

The male suspect was described as a male, 5’9”, wearing all dark clothing and boots. Officers checked the area extensively but were unable to locate the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Eureka Police Department at (707) 441-4044.
