CK's Coffee Shop robbed

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - CK's Coffee Shop on Poplar Avenue was robbed Thursday morning, according to Memphis Police Department.

Witnesses said a 6' tall man with long dreadlocks pulled back in a ponytail walked up to the shop's counter and started pressing buttons to try and open the cash register.

Witnesses said the suspect had one hand in his pocket, but he never pulled out a weapon or said he had a weapon.

The suspect demanded a manager open the register. A manager eventually opened the register and the suspect made off with $170.

Witnesses said the suspect left the coffee shop running northbound on Evergreen Street.
