The Anchorage Police Department warned the public Monday afternoon of two suspects who robbed a coffee stand and were believed to be on foot after ditching a stolen vehicle in Eagle River.

At 1:34 p.m. on Monday, two people driving a stolen vehicle robbed the Alaska Sweet Cup coffee stand at 1467 Muldoon Road, according to police.

The pair left the business "with an undisclosed amount of money" and didn't injure anyone, police spokeswoman Renee Oistad said.

Police found the white truck the suspects had stolen at a Shell gas station in Eagle River, at 11301 Old Glenn Highway. They tried to steal a second car, but failed, police said.

Police also warned Anchorage residents, especially in Eagle River, "do not leave unoccupied vehicles running; robbery suspects may try to steal (them)."

Police asked people to not approach the suspects and to call 911 if they see them.

Police described the suspects as a man, believed to be armed with a handgun, wearing a sweatshirt with dark gray sleeves and a light gray body. The second suspect is described as a woman in her mid- to late 20s, wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans, and Ugg boots rolled down to show the fur cuff. She has long dark hair with highlights, according to police.
