READ: You may wonder why someone would catch a thief and then take them for coffee. Well this woman did exactly this. When a woman screamed out that her purse had been taken, Tess Aboughoushe sprung into action. She chased the thief, but what happened next surprised her.
The man was around the corner, on the floor wimpering. He handed the wallet over to Tess, and not much else. Tess returned the wallet, and proceeded to buy the thief a coffee.
She could tell he was scared, but why? The man stated that he was visiting with friends, but was left behind with no money. He was desperate and didn't know what to do. Tess showed him compassion, and gave not only the coffee, but directions to the local library where social workers could help him return home.
