HELENA, Mont. (January 23, 2013)--A man who summoned the courage to rob a Montana pizza restaurant changed his mind as the clerk started to hand him money, broke down crying and ended up leaving with a pizza with which to feed his hungry family, police said.
Helena, Mont., Police Chief Troy McGee said just after midnight Monday, the man, who was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a bandanna on his face, entered a Papa John's restaurant and handed the clerk a note demanding money.
The cashier started to comply, but then the man started crying and said he was just trying to provide for his family.
The clerk offered to make a pizza and some chicken wings.
The man waited while the food was cooked, and then left on foot.
A Papa John's manager declined to comment.
