Customers yen for coffee but really need dough

A quiet afternoon in a Kratie coffee shop took a frightening turn on Friday for the shop’s owner and her son.

Police said two men wearing medical masks sat down, purchased some coffee, and waited.

When they were the only two customers, they produced a gun and looted the place of $700 cash and some property.

Both the woman and her son were uninjured, but while she’s filed a complaint, identifying them is proving difficult thanks to the masks. DEUM AMPIL
