The robber collapsed into tears, and said he was turning to crime in order to feed his family. So the owner put down his rifle and gave the guy $40. Then he talked to the robber about his religion, effected an on-the-spot conversion, and sent him on his way.
This being the 21st century, the owner was a Muslim, who came here from Pakistan 20 years ago. The robber -- who has now formally professed Islam -- cannot be identified, because of his mask.
It's a touching story, and a reminder of how converts are supposed to be made.
