LOCAL POLICE prevented an armed bank robbery in Avenida de la Estacion in Almeria. A middle-aged man entered the bank and claiming to feel ill, asked the staff to call an ambulance. He then went to a restricted area, and when one of the staff told him he couldn’t be there, the man allegedly took out a knife and demanded all the money they had.
The employee was able to get away from him and grab him from behind and hold him until the police arrived and arrested him. Some of the staff had to be treated for anxiety attacks, but no-one was injured.
