Robber finds God mid hold-up

A robber who agreed to pray with the cashier he was threatening at gunpoint has thanked her for bringing him to his senses. Indianapolis police called the moment Gregory Smith (23) fell to his knees as cashier Angela Montez pleaded with him one of the most unusual cases they have seen. Reports said Smith was on his knees for 10 minutes before he left the cheque exchange store, only taking the clerk’s mobile phone and $20. Smith later handed himself in and is facing eight criminal charges. A father of a two-year-old, Smith said he had been desperate to support his family but through Montez praying and talking with him, ‘God put the right person there at the right time’.
