It happened in the 3400 block of Victoria Avenue Thursday. A suspect was attempting to steal merchandise when the employee confronted him and that’s when he was hit by the chocolate treat.

The victim’s injuries were minor, while the suspect fled but was arrested nearby.

He faces charges of assault and theft under $5,000.

Brandon police says it shows suspects are unpredictable and will use whatever weapon is available to them.
