A quick thinking employee uses hot coffee as a weapon to stop a possible robbery. Ouch... I bet that hurt. See it on the security video.

West Haven, Connecticut police are looking for a man they said tried to climb through a window to rob a Dunkin' Donuts Saturday. The employee was not letting that happen though, and hot coffee was tossed into his face.

They said a man asked the clerk to change a $100 bill. When the employee refused, the man then announced he was robbing the store and tried to climb through the drive-thru window.The clerk then opened the cup of coffee and tossed it into his face before grabbing the whole pot and tossing it at him. I love this. He did get away.

Watch the quick thinking clerk in action.
