A robbery attempt at a Dunkin' Donuts in West Haven, Connecticut, over the weekend was quickly foiled when a rogue employee doused the perp with a cup of hot coffee.
The clerk, identified only as Angelica, said a man who had rolled up to the drive-thru window after ordering coffee asked her to change a $100, which she declined to do.
That's when the man told the employee she was being robbed and began climbing out of his truck and into the drive-thru window.
Angelica says she tried to close the window, but the man's arm was in the way.
"I did see his coffee that I made him, so I looked at (it) quick, threw him the first one," she told NBC Connecticut. "Looked at the pots of coffee and threw the pot of coffee at him."
The man immediately took off toward his truck, leaving Angelica behind to seal the incident with a catchphrase: "I said, 'Go run on Dunkin'.'"
Police are still on the lookout for the suspect, who was last seen driving away in a white Ford Explorer.
