PHILADELPHIA -- A man accused of having thrown hot coffee on a west Philadelphia doughnut shop clerk has turned himself in to police.
Fifty-two-year-old David Timbers surrendered Monday to face an aggravated assault charge.
Authorities said the clerk was burned on the arm after Timbers allegedly hurled the coffee during a dispute Tuesday morning in Fresh Donuts in West Philadelphia.
Store surveillance video shows a man who said he paid for a sandwich taking the cup from the clerk's hand and throwing it at her, eliciting a screech of pain, and then escaping despite the efforts of others in the shop to detain him.
WPVI-TV says Timbers declined comment Monday, but defense attorney Chaka Johnson said his client was "very remorseful."
He said Timbers is a grandfather with seven children.
