Robbery at Bucharest bank

A Piraeus Bank branch in central Bucharest was robbed yesterday. A man armed with a sharp item walked into the Nerva Traian branch office and threatened the cashier. The money taken by the robber was little and will have no significant impact on either bank or customers and no one was hurt, bank officials told Mediafax.


Investigators say the robber had a jumper pulled over his face and was about 1.8 m in height. Bucharest Police Spokesperson Christian Ciocan said the robbery had occurred at around 12:30, when the man threatened one of the bank employees while another one was sent to bring the money. It seems that the perpetrator stole about RON 5,000 and more than EUR 1,000, Ciocan said. The small bank branch had no security guard, but did have CCTV. The Police watched the material caught on the surveillance cameras. The security firm the bank has a contract with sent there a special squad that reached the scene four minutes after the panic button had been hit.
