Shop robbery in Brussels: The thief leaves the money out of pity

A thief in Brussels took pity on a trader when he saw the scanty contents of his till, which he was about to rob last week, and decided to leave empty-handed.

“Keep your money,” said the man, whose face was camouflaged by a motorcycle helmet, dealer Mikaël Thil told TF1.

The latter had just stormed into the Cellier de Vinalgros in Brussels, gun in hand, to demand the entire cash register.

But the robber would have been surprised at the meager 110 euros – around 160 Canadian dollars – in the till.

“We explained to him that due to the current economic situation and crises, we unfortunately had nothing more to give him,” the wine merchant continued.

Even if he has changed his mind, the person is still wanted by the police.

“Of course he left us our money. But we were still stopped with a gun. And we know that this kind of insult can sometimes get out of hand. So yes, even if he has done a ‘good deed’ he has yet to be found,” the trader added.
