Dunkin' Donuts worker uses hot coffee to stop robber

Man gets away empty handed

WEST HAVEN, Conn. - A Dunkin' Donuts employee in Connecticut stopped a robbery with the closest weapon available -- hot coffee.

Police say the robber pulled up to the drive-though and tried to climb through the window.

The worker first tried to shut the window on him, but then tossed a cup of hot coffee in his face.

When that didn't stop him, the clerk grabbed a pot of coffee and threw it at him.

The man got away empty handed, and he's still on the run.
