Woman Throws Boiling Coffee Right In The Face Of A WaWa Employee For Getting Order Wrong


A 34-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday after she assaulted a Wawa employee over a mistake with her order, police said.

Tiffany Evans placed an order for a sandwich at the 1450 Forrest Avenue Wawa at 8:45 p.m., said Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman of Dover police.

While an employee was preparing the sandwich, Evans yelled at him for making a mistake. Another employee told Evans to stop yelling at the employee and a second sandwich would be made, Hoffman said.

Evans began to argue with the second employee and threw a cup of hot coffee in the employee’s face, causing burns, Hoffman said.

The coffee also hit the other employee and damaged his cellphone in his pocket. The coffee damaged about $200 worth of food products in the sandwich prep area.

The employee, with burns on her face from the coffee, walked around the counter and continued to argue with Evans, who then pepper sprayed her in the face, Hoffman said.

Evans left the Wawa and police identified her by the tag number on her car, Hoffman said. She turned herself in to Dover police without incident.


The Wawa store closed for more than an hour to allow for the pepper spray to dissipate and to clean up the food prep station, Hoffman said.

The Wawa employee was transported to the hospital for minor injuries after the thrown hot coffee. –Delaware Online
