A restaurant owner has left many impressed after offering a job opportunity to a person that attempted to rob his business premises.
Carl Wallace, who owns a restaurant in Georgia called Diablo's Southwest Grill, decided against pressing charges on the burglar but instead wanted to help him out.
The restaurant was broken into on Easter weekend, a time Carl was also celebrating turning 45, with CCTV footage showing the man dressed in a hooded tracksuit.
The thief then used a brick to break the restaurant front door before taking out the cash register only to find there was no cash.
Sharing the photos from the CCTV footage on the restaurant's Facebook account, Carl directly sent the message to the robber asking him to swing by for a job application.
The hotelier noted there were better things he could do instead of robbing people and left his personal number for him to call.
"No police, no questions. Let’s sit down and talk about how we could help you and fix the road you’re on," he wrote.
Many who came across the post praised the businessman for his compassion noting the thief could have made a poor decision due to struggles in life.
