Shock moment in the USA: Here a man tries to pull the barista out of the window.
The American drive-in café “Beankini Espresso” in Auburn, Washington, offers what the name promises: coffee beans and bikinis. The coffee is prepared for customers there exclusively by female baristas who are only dressed in bikinis. Now one of the employees was almost kidnapped.
A surveillance video of the café released by the police shows the frightening scene: around 5 a.m. early Monday morning, a pickup truck pulled up in front of the drive-in café’s window. A beefy man with a three-day beard orders a drink from the barista. When she wants to hand him the change through the window, the man suddenly grabs her and apparently wants to pull her through the window into his car. In the other hand he already has a cable tie with a ready-made loop.
At the last moment, the bikini barista manages to free her arm from the attacker’s grip and close the window. Her kidnapper then hits the gas and flees.
“Nothing like this has ever happened”
The bikini baristas are exposed to dangers in their work, and the management – which consists only of women – is aware of this. To protect the women from intrusive customers, they were equipped with pepper spray and an electric shock gun. In addition to surveillance cameras and a steel entrance door, the establishment also has a panic button that can be used to call the police directly.
So far that has been enough. “I’ve been working here for nine years and nothing like this has ever happened,” the barista, who wishes to remain anonymous, told the Daily Mail. The police are now trying to identify the man based on his “Chevrolet” tattoo on his left forearm and have asked the population for help. “I hope the police catch this guy quickly,” the young woman continues, “before he assaults another woman!”
The café has caused quite a stir in the past. The city wanted it closed years ago to protect citizens from the “harmful effects of public nudity.” But the “Hillbilly Hotties” filed a lawsuit against it in 2017, which was followed by a long legal battle. The cafe still exists today. (hey)
