They are jobless younger fellows with kind heart, looking for pocket money, they are not professional snatchers else scenario would have been different.

This delivery boy must be very needy and working very hard just to make two ends meet. That’s why he just broke down.
We should help such people as much as we can.
Appreciate the robbers for sparing him. It proves that apparently bad people can have good qualities.
