ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A robber's inability to drive a stick shift might have proven costly for him had the victim not agreed to give him a ride.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the victim was sitting in a Saint Louis University parking lot Sunday night when a man approached, showed a gun, and demanded money. The victim gave the robber $24.

The robber then ordered the man to move over to the passenger seat and tried to drive off with the car. Problem was, he couldn't operate a car with a manual transmission.

The victim said he would give the robber a ride, drove him to his destination, and got a thank you when the robber got out.

An investigation continues. No arrests have been made.
