Austria: OAP tells armed bank robber to get a job
A bank robber who claimed to be carrying a bomb and who was wielding a handgun proved no match for an 82-year-old pensioner who bashed him with her handbag - and then pulled off his balaclava as he threatened staff at a bank at St. Egyden am Steinfeld in Lower Austria.
Hertha Wallecker, 82, saw red when Gerhard P. ran into the local Raiffeisen bank shouting “I’ve got a bomb – I only want the big notes”. The angry pensioner bashed the crook and then grabbed the mask - pulling it off as he tried to run past to the teller while brandishing the gun.
He demanded that the terrified cashier fill the bag with money and warned: “I’ve got a bomb – keep away.”
But that didn’t deter the battling pensioner who accosted him again from behind and grabbed the mask a second time – this time flinging it on the floor.
She told him: “That is the bank’s money, if you want money then get a job you lazy devil.”
Then as the armed raider attempted with one hand to put the mask back on and avoid being snapped by security cameras – she grabbed the plastic bag and tried to wrestle it out of his hands - scattering money over the floor and tearing one of the handles off before the man managed to escape.
