MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are looking for two men who held up a coffee shop near the University of Memphis overnight.
The robbery happened after midnight at CK’s Coffee Shop on South Highland near Southern Avenue.
An employee reported the men walked into the business, took money from the register, then tried to open the safe.
When they were unsuccessful, they grabbed the victim’s cellphone and the store’s landline phone and fled.
Police said the two men got away with some cash but no one inside was hurt.
In May, WREG reported another robbery at the coffee shop.
A waitress told authorities the suspect appeared to be casing the building several days before the robbery, asking questions about employee shifts.
The very next day, he returned and sat in a booth for thirty minutes before leaving.
Hours later, he returned a third time only to rob to place and the waitress of $100.
