Police: Mom Prompts Hugging, Praying Robber To Surrender:
INDIANAPOLIS -- A man who police said was involved in a bizarre robbery in which he hugged and prayed with a frightened store clerk turned himself in after his mother saw him on TV.

Police said Smith jumped behind the counter and pointed a gun at the female clerk, but then became remorseful when she began crying and talking about God.

"He, at that time, starts to basically console her," said Indianapolis police Detective Kevin Wethington. Police said the robber told the clerk that he hated to do it, but times are hard and he has a 2-year-old child to support.

Surveillance video showed the clerk praying with the robber, who even went so far as to hug the frightened female clerk.
