HYANNIS, Mass. (AP) — Police say masked and armed men in Cape Cod thought they were nabbing a bag of dough.

They did — just not the kind they wanted.

Three Hyannis men are facing armed robbery while masked charges after police say they robbed a Dunkin’ Donuts with knives and a hatchet on Wednesday and only ended up with a bag of doughnuts.

According to police, the men demanded a paper bag that was in one of the worker’s purses, mistakenly believing she was carrying cash from the day’s receipts. But police say the men never looked inside.

The men were captured on video and police were able to track them down on Thursday. Arrested were 19-year-old Nicholas Mercurio, 21-year-old Lukas Peterson and 20-year-old Charles Iliffe.

It was unclear if any had attorneys.
