Robbery at Ľudová Banka

An armed robber made off with loot worth over 2 million Sk from the Jesenského St. branch of Ľudová Banka in Bratislava on February 10.
The robber attacked a security service member and gained entry into the bank at 7:45 p.m. Though the clerk set off an alarm and the police reached the site of the robbery within four minutes, the offender escaped. Police said they had security camera footage of the criminal.
The money was in both crowns and foreign currency, Ľudová Banka management said. The bank also announced its risk is fully covered by contracts with foreign insurers.

The robber's take was relatively modest, as far as Bratislava's armed robberies go.

An armed robbery at the affiliate of Ľudová Banka in the centre of Bratislava on July 16, 1997 earned its perpatrators 60 million Sk.

The largest bank robbery in Slovakia's history took place at the General Credit Bank's (VÚB) Nitra Branch, on January 5-8, 1996. More than 170 million Sk was taken at that time.
