The Starbucks Coffee shop at the Yuma Palms Mall was robbed late Thursday morning by a man who displayed a gun to the clerk and demanded money.
According to Yuma police, at about 10:53 a.m., a suspect, with what appeared to be a handgun under his shirt, entered the coffee shop and demanded money from the clerk.
"The suspect lifted the front of his shirt and and displayed the gun to the clerk," said officer Clint Norred of the Yuma Police Department.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect fled on foot toward the east where he eventually got into a car.
The car is described as an older model grey or silver passenger car.
Norred said no one was injured in the incident and there were at least three customers in the store at the time of the robbery.
