A man who apologized as he allegedly stole NIS 100 (approximately $29) from a grocery store in the central city of Bat Yam is set to be charged, police said.

In security footage from the store released Thursday, the suspect was seen brandishing a small knife while expressing regret to the staff member.

The suspect entered the store and chose a number of items which he then placed on the counter in front of the staff member.

After a few seconds, he pulled a knife out of his pocket and waved it toward the woman.

His other hand was on his chest in a gesture of apology, and he asked the woman for forgiveness.

He took some cash from the till, appearing to ignore the banknotes, and ran away. He was later detained by police.

The report did not mention any possible motive or background to the robbery.
