For some reason I find this story heartwarming. Sort of like that Sesame Street skit with those monsters that go "Gronk Gronk" and try to get the nectarine out of the tree. Except with guns. But isn't it cute that they were holding hands when they were running? And that the other guy didn't just abandon the blind guy? It's like a freakin' Disney film...

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) - Police in the central Argentine city of Cordoba foiled a predawn street hold-up on Thursday -- and were staggered to find one of the assailants was blind.

"When a police car arrived at the scene, the pair took off running. What caught the attention of the officer was that they were running holding hands," Police Commissioner Luis Ceballos told Reuters. "On apprehending them, the officer found one of them was blind."

Police recovered a fire-arm from the scene, and are still trying to work out what was going through the blind robber's mind. It was not immediately clear which of the pair was wielding the gun.

"We don't know what they were thinking," Ceballos said. "This is the first time I've seen anything like this in my life."
