When a Florida cellphone store clerk was approached by an armed robber, she turned to Jesus for help: "I'm just going to talk to you about Jesus, my God, before you leave." He left, and later robbed a Payless ShoeSource.
The attempted robbery took place on July 23 in Pompano Beach, Florida, at a Metro PCS cellphone store. The clerk, 20-year-old Nayara Goncalves, talked the armed man out of robbing her store by spreading the word of Jesus and telling him that she would have to cover the stolen money. After a conversation the man left empty handed. He revealed that he was carrying only a BB gun and that he too loved Jesus. A few hours later he robbed a shoe store.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office has charged 37-year-old Israel Camacho with the crimes.
