Police try to sniff out bank robber

Slovaks were on the lookout for a foul-smelling bank robber on Thursday after police said the thief had a nasty odor.

A gun-toting, masked man in his twenties, clad in a green sweatshirt, robbed a bank in the capital and took about 461 000 koruna ($14 235) in various currencies, police said.

Police spokesperson Alena Tosevova said what the bandit wore was not the most noticeable thing for workers inside the bank, but rather a strong smell, which they reported to investigators.

Tosevova said it was unclear whether the smell was caused by the thief having stepped into dog droppings or whether he soiled himself during the robbery.—Sapa-AP
