    (NECN) - A Dunkin’ Donuts employee in Connecticut fends off a would-be robber with the only weapon available at the time: coffee.

    It happened Saturday night at the Dunkin' Donuts on First Avenue in West Haven.

    Police say the suspect pulled up in the drive-through and tried to climb through the window.

    That was when the clerk threw hot coffee in the man's face.

    The man then took off.
