Man Who Intended To Rob Restaurant Leaves With Pizza Instead

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.
