AN armed robber has been arrested in Indonesia after he stopped mid-raid to take care of a crying baby.

Kojek Mista and four accomplices, armed with swords, guns and knives, broke into a house in Tangarang, near Jakarta, after scaling a wall.

They rounded up all of the adult occupants who were awake and tied them up – but the furore woke the baby, reports the Jakarta Globe.

Mista quickly realised the awkward truth – the baby’s mother and nanny were unable to help as he’d just tied them up. At a police press conference in Jakarta, Mista, who faces ten years in jail, told reporters how his conscience kicked in.

“I asked his mother how to make him stop crying. She said he had to be fed with milk,” he explained.

“The mother said it should be made with two spoons of milk and warm water. I gave it to the baby while cradling him.

“Not long after that, the baby fell asleep, so I put him in bed. I have a kid, so I know how to cradle a baby.”

The gang managed to escape with items worth about R45 060 but were later caught. Four were arrested and one was shot dead by police.
