King County Sheriff's detectives are investigating an incident in which a female barista at the Best Friend coffee stand in Kenmore allegedly exposed herself to a male customer buying a hot chocolate.
According to the sheriff's office, the reporting party came to the Kenmore police station some three weeks after the alleged incident out of embarrassment. The report is dated Nov. 20, but the episode allegedly took place about 7:15 p.m. Oct. 26.
The reporting party told police he visited Best Friend after retrieving his car from the nearby Kenmore Park and Ride Lot. He stated he had no idea the coffee shop employed bikini-clad baristas. After he ordered his drink, the female barista allegedly asked him if he wanted a show. The man said he nervously responded positively, not really knowing what to expect.
According to the police report, the man states the barista allegedly exposed herself from the waist up and from the waist down, reportedly fondling herself briefly. Asked by the barista if he had enjoyed himself, the man reportedly said, "No," and drove off with his drink but no change from a 20-dollar bill.
The witness identified the suspect only by her first name. According to police, there is a barista with that name, age 20, working at the stand. She has not been charged, but the report states the information was turned over to detectives.
The operators of the Friend stand could not immediately be reached for comment.
