(KFVS) -

A diaper change at a Denver Starbucks led to the cops being called over the weekend.

According to USA Today, the parents of a young child were visiting the Starbucks and the child's diaper needed to be changed.

The mother took the child to the bathroom and found there were no changing tables in the bathroom.

Reportedly, she then took the baby back out to the public seating area and changed him there.

The parents say a Starbucks employee tossed a rag to the mother, told her to clean up after she finished and spoke to her in a "demeaning" way.

The parents also said that employees were talking and laughing amongst themselves about the incident which angered the father of the child.

The father said he decided to then pour his cup of coffee on the floor to show his anger about the situation and then he and some employees exchanged "strong words" and "hand gestures."

Someone at the store eventually called police to report a disturbance.

Once police arrived, no arrests were made.

Starbucks has since made a statement saying they are concerned about the incident and that they wanted all customers to be respected and treated with dignity.
