Two armed men attempted unsuccessfully to rob a car of ProCredit Bank in the Bulgarian capital Friday night.

The two masked robbers tackled one of the guards of accompanying the company car transporting an unspecified sum of money before a branch of ProCredit Bank in the Lyulin Quarter.

However, the second guard managed to activate a panic button and to lock himself inside the car. Thus, the two armed attackers only managed to handcuff the first guard. They did not steal a penny as they had to leave the spot immediately. The police have started an operation searching for them all around Sofia.
