A robbery victim was surprised after the alleged perpetrator returned to the scene of the crime to apologise for what he had just done.
Satnam Singh was working at the Keewatin Street petrol station in the early hours of Wednesday morning when a man approached the service window and demanded cash from him, CBC News reported.
When the 44-year-old suspect realized he wouldn’t be getting anything, after Singh shut the service hatch, he left the garage in Winnipeg, Canada.
Mr Singh contacted the police but while they were at the petrol station they got a surprise visitor, the man who had attempted to rob him.
‘I’m sorry, I apologize. I need money. That’s why I tried to rob,’ the alleged thief reportedly told the shop owner.
Mr Singh was not moved by the man’s words and quickly got the attention of the authorities.
He said: ‘So, I didn’t listen to him [at all]. I opened my store’s main door and I just waved my hand to police.’
The suspected thief is now in police custody.
