A quick-thinking manager at an Akron Church's Chicken chased off two relentless armed robbery suspects on Wednesday.

It happened around noon at the restaurant on S. Arlington Street.

According to police, the manager was using a kitchen hose to clean in the back of the store when he noticed movement by the back door. Two armed robbers then forced their way inside the restaurant.

The manager quickly turned the hose to hot, and sprayed the robbers. The soaked suspects left, only to return a few seconds later. The manager sprayed them with the hose again, and they finally fled for good.

Police believe the same men are responsible for robbing the restaurant last Sunday. During that heist, the two armed men got away with roughly $30.

No one was injured in either robbery.

Officials hope the restaurant's surveillance will help identify the brazen suspects. They are considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Akron Police at 330-375-2181.
