Police: Robbers use hot coffee as a weapon

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

Police are searching for two men they say robbed a Flash Foods in Douglas. About 3:30 Wednesday morning, two men went into the store on East Baker Highway, and one of the men threw a cup of hot coffee into the face and upper body of the female clerk.

He pulled a large wooden stick from under his coat, and forced the clerk to the cash register.

The crook forced her to open the register, and then took the cash, before running away from the store.

The Clerk was treated at Coffee Regional Medical Center for burns she sustained from the coffee.

The Douglas Police Department gave this description of the suspects: Two black men who were both wearing dark colored coats. One had a brownish colored hood over his head and a ball cap with a yellow brim. The other had a grey colored hood over his head with a ball cap with a blue colored brim. Both were wearing dark colored jeans and black shoes. One of the individuals had white soles on his shoes.
