NORTH LIBERTY — A Bettendorf man has been arrested in connection with a 2017 robbery.

Rahshi S. Woods, 22, entered Capanna Coffee around 10 p.m. Dec. 16, 2017, according to a North Liberty police complaint. After using the Wi-Fi for about 90 minutes, he approached the only employee in the coffee shop and demanded cash from the register.

Woods displayed a metal object thought to be a knife and told the employee he would “come over the counter” if she didn’t comply, police said.

He grabbed the cash himself and fled, police said.

Woods, who already was in custody at the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office on other charges, faces one count of second-degree robbery, a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
