Gunman prays on knees during raid


A gunman spent nearly 10 minutes on his knees praying with a cashier during a raid at an American payday loan firm.

CCTV showed the man brandishing a gun before falling to his knees, crying and talking about God.

The man told the clerk he had a two-year-old child to support and asked for prayers about overcoming his hardships. A 23-year-old man later surrendered to police.
