CRESCENT CITY, Calif. (AP) -- An attempted burglary at a California supply
store was thwarted when the manager threw hot coffee in the face of a masked

Chris Hegnes, manager of the Englund Marine and Industrial Supply, was going
into work early Monday morning when he encountered a man in a mask charging
at him with a hammer.

Hegnes says he hurled his hot mocha at the man's face and ran for it.

The man came after him for a few steps, then ran to a vehicle parked behind
the store.

Hegnes says the man apparently had been trying to break into a safe using
the store's hardware tools. The man didn't get away with much, but damaged
some tools.

The sheriff's office is investigating.
