Reluctant thief with hungry family gets pizza

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A man who apparently 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 to feed his hungry family.

Helena Police Chief Troy McGee says just after midnight Monday, a man 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, then left on foot.

A Papa John's manager declined to comment.
