Early closing thwarts bankrobber

A bankobber was left empty-handed when he turned up ten minutes late and found the branch had already closed for the day.

Staff at the Podravska Bank in Zagreb, Croatia, told police they were just getting ready to go home when they heard the doors rattling and saw a masked man holding a gun trying to get in.

Police spokesman Davor Tor said: “Most banks here open until 7pm but this robber obviously picked the wrong branch.

“Staff said even though he was wearing a mask they could tell from his movements that he was very confused to find the bank wasn’t open.”

Police are looking for the robber and say if caught he will be charged with attempted armed robbery.
