Yellowstone County officials say they have arrested a man suspected of robbing a Billings convenience store using a cup of hot chocolate.

Officers say the man walked into the convenience store about 8:30 p.m. Friday and filled up a cup of hot chocolate.

When the clerk opened cash register, surveillance video shows the man threw the hot chocolate in her face, took cash from the register and fled in a pickup truck. The clerk suffered minor burns and did not require medical attention.

Deputy Blaine Weston says a suspect was arrested Sunday morning, but officials have not released his name.
