    Woman overpowers thief with tea and sympathy

    TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese woman and her six-month-old baby escaped unhurt from a knife-wielding thief this week after the mother calmed him down with a cup of tea and a chat.

    The 30-year-old Tokyo woman was walking along a corridor in her apartment building with her daughter Monday when a man brandishing a knife demanded money, the Asahi newspaper said.

    When the housewife told him she had none, the man barged into her apartment. Hoping to calm him, the woman made the thief a cup of tea, whereupon he put his knife away and began a 20-minute monologue about his life.

    The woman then gave the man 10,000 yen ($93.34) and ran outside to call the police from a pay phone, the report said.

    Police rushed to the scene, but the thief had fled and is still being sought.

    This isn't really gun-related.
