It seems no one can ever fully understand what goes on in the mind of a criminal. An elderly woman in Brazil found herself in the middle of an armed robbery recently. In fear, she offered the money in her hand to the robber but he refused it. Instead, he bent down and kissed her forehead.

According to Daily Mail, surveillance camera inside the pharmacy where the robbery took place shows the suspect speaking with the woman while his accomplice robs a store employee.

It appears the armed robber was keeping the woman calm as his partner was robbing the store. The thieves got away with the equivalent of around R3 500.
