During the brazen armed robbery of an NLB bank branch in Cair, one of the bank guards was injured.
The attack happened around 10:30, and eyewitnesses say that they heard gunshots during the attack.
Police sources told Republika that the injured 26 year old guard was not hurt by the firearms carried by the several attackers.
The Slovenian owned bank chain confirmed that customers were in the branch during the attack. “We are happy that our clients are safe and in good condition”, the bank said. Attackers left with a still undisclosed sum of money and the bank issues a press release assuring its clients that their funds are safe and ensured against theft.
