Bankrobber takes hostages

Today a man who tried to rob a bank on the Mariahilfer Stra├če, the biggest shopping city in Vienna, took hostages and barricaded himself into the bank when the alarm took off. At the moment I am writing this there are still several people inside the bank and the police are negotiating with the man.

The ORF provides an interesting picture show to this event.

Let’s hope he turns himself in without turning the whole thing into a bloodbath. I have never heard of a bankrobber or any other criminal taking hostages who got away. It just never happens.
