Man robbed at gunpoint for egg beater.

It must be one special egg beater.
That was the loot two men demanded after entering a home in Plant City, one brandishing a pistol and the other holding a knife to the resident's throat, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.
The two men face charges of armed burglary of a dwelling after being caught outside the home on State Road 60 in Plant City about 4:25 a.m. today, the sheriff's office said.
Deputies arrested Robert Thompson, 2211 Holloman Road, Plant City, and Taurus Morris, 5852 Odom Road, Lakeland.
In addition to the burglary charge, Thompson faces a charge of aggravated assault.
The sheriff's office said the two men came into the victim's home about 3:35 a.m. Thompson armed himself with a folding knife while Morris held a chrome pistol, arrest reports said.
Thompson held the knife against the victim's neck and demanded the metal egg beater which was found in his left back pocket when he was arrested, the sheriff's office said.
The report also said the victim knew both men.
Thompson and Morris are being held in the Orient Road Jail with no bond.
