Police asked for the public’s help Tuesday to ID a man who attacked a barista at the Hottie Shots Espresso stand, forced her out of the building at knifepoint and tried to rape her.

The barista, a 30-year-old Bonney Lake woman, told officers that the man came to the coffee stand window on foot and ordered a drink at about 4:45 a.m. Tuesday.
She said while she was distracted making the drink, the man climbed through the window and held her at knifepoint, then forced her outside into a dark alleyway near the stand.”During his attempt to sexually assault her, he was spooked by the vehicle headlights of a customer that pulled into the barista stand drive-through,”
