An unusual act by a burglar in the middle of a robbery has gone viral online, leaving thousands at a loss for words. Surveillance footage from a pharmacy in Brazil shows the armed robber refusing money from an elderly woman and kissing her on the forehead to comfort her as his accomplice robs the store.
On Tuesday evening, two armed men entered the pharmacy in Amarante in northeast Brazil, according to Daily Mail. Business owner Samuel Almedia says they entered the establishment at around 5pm and announced the robbery. In the pharmacy at that time were an employee and the elderly woman, who lives near the establishment.
"They announced the theft, asked my employee to pass all the money," said Mr Almeida to Brazilian news outlet G1.
The woman also offered her own cash to them, to which one of the robbers responded that she didn't have to. He kissed her on the forehead and said, "No, ma'am, you can be quiet, I don't want your money."
The thieves later escaped the store with around $1,000 in cash and some goods.
