Bungling bank robber

AN "AMATEUR" bank robber who botched a hold up on Wednesday could face 12 years in jail even though he failed to take any money away form the raid.

In what police said would have been the smallest bank robbery in years - Sk56,000 ($1200) - a man walked into a bank in the central Slovak town of Banská Štiavnica and demanded money from tellers.

Having put money in a bag quickly the man then panicked and ran. But in fleeing the robber dropped the bag.

Police, who called the man an "amateur" robber, say they are looking for a man from the local area.
