into a bank on the main street of Vienna (Bawag Bank) brandishing a gun, recently,
according to reports we have seen on Ananova.
for him he was quickly cornered as, next door, was the home of the country's special
forces headquarters and a police station.
retreated to the first floor of the bank and grabbed three members of staff and
then proceeded to agree loans with customers on the telephone before he eventually
gave himself up to the police after a five hour seige.
at the bank then had to contact those given loans to check their details.
