Lincolnton, NC -- An armed robber didn't scare one elderly couple during a home invasion--the two were busy reading their Bible.
Lincoln County investigators say a masked man broke into their home searching for money and prescription medication.
Police say the male victim was reading his Bible when the suspect entered the home and pointed a gun at him.
The suspect got what he came for and ran into the woods.
As he left, the female victim yelled that the man "should be reading the Bible instead of committing crimes," according to police.
The break-in is still under investigation.
