A 20-year-old man in Zagreb walked into a PBZ bank in the Gajnica neighborhood of Zagreb, completed a transaction, leaving his personal information and signature, then approached a teller and robbed the bank in broad daylight.

It didn’t take Croatian authorities long to locate the man and he is currently in police custody.

According to Croatian news site, police issued a statement saying, “We suspect that on Friday, September 1, around 15:00 hours, he entered the bank branch, then after completing a transaction at one counter, approached another counter and asked the 33-year-old teller for money, threatening [the teller] with a written note saying he would activate a hand grenade. Out of fear for his life, the teller handed the suspect around 37,000 kuna [approx. €5000].”
