Police Arrest Man Who Tried to Rob Nun

MADISON, WISCONSIN (AP) -- Police in Madison, Wisconsin, have arrested a man who they say came up empty-handed when he tried to rob a nun who told him repeatedly that she had no money.

Police say the man broke into nun's home yesterday morning, and was told by the nun that she had no money.  The man then forced her to drive him around in her car for almost an hour in search of money.

Police say the two did not stop at a bank or cash machine because the nun claimed she didn't have access to the money.

Police say the man eventually gave up and had the nun drop him off.  The man was arrested last night, but has not been formally charged.
