Hot coffee stops robbery at Dunkin Donuts

http://www.firstcoastnews.com/rss/article/301478/82/Hot-coffee-stops-robbery-at-Dunkin-Donuts

(NBC NEWS) -- When a man tried to rob a Connecticut Dunkin' Donuts on Saturday night, an employee acted quickly and stopped him with the closest weapon available -- hot coffee.

The attempted robbery happened at a West Haven store at 11:06 p.m., when a man pulled up to the drive-through and asked the clerk for change for a $100 bill, according to Sgt. David Tammaro, of the West Haven Police Department.

When the clerk refused to make the change, the man said this was a robbery and tried to climb through the drive-through window, police said.

That is when the clerk threw hot coffee in man's face, police said.

The man fled the area in a newer model white Ford Explorer without stealing anything, according to a news release from police.
