A somewhat sensitive robber gave a sobbing man his wallet back in San Francisco Thursday – but the crook still fled with cash and a cellphone, police said.
The 29-year-old victim was robbed around 10:30 p.m. as he was walking upstairs in his apartment building on Grant Avenue in Telegraph Hill. The crook, who had snuck inside, crept up behind him and demanded his stuff, police said.
The victim complied, but then he started to cry. The rotten robber, described as a man in his late 30s, was apparently touched by the waterworks. But only enough to return the item least meaningful to him.
