EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) –
A man trying to rob a clerk at an Evansville Dollar General store got a little “divine intervention” he wasn’t expecting.
Pastor Carl Sanders says he only wanted to buy a Gatorade when he stopped at the store, Friday night.
When he got inside he witnessed a man trying to rob a store clerk with what appeared to be a gun wrapped in plastic.
“He was coming at me saying, ‘get on the ground,'” said Sanders. “But I couldn’t see what he had… That’s when I pulled my weapon and say, ‘No, you get on the ground.'”
Sanders says he told the suspect to put his face on the ground and not to look at him.
“I just told him this is out of love,” said Sanders.
