A robber dressed in a hooded sweatshirt with a bandana over his face walked into a Papa John’s pizza restaurant in Helena, Mont., and demanded money from one of the workers Tuesday.

As the employee turned around to get the cash, the would-be robber began to get emotional, according to police.  The employee began to talk to him, and found out the man was trying to buy food for his family.

The would be thief broke down crying, and the employee offered him pizza and chicken wings instead.  Instead of calling the police, the Papa John’s worker cooked the man food.  With a hot pizza and wings instead of a stolen bag of cash, the man left on foot.
