Laughter is best defense against bungling robber
ZAGREB,Croatia (AP) -- A bank clerk didn't need a weapon to ward off a would-be robber. When the masked man pulled out a gun, she just laughed in his face.
The suspect was so humiliated he ran away.
The bungled holdup occurred Thursday at a small bank on Zagreb's main square, police said.
The 31-year-old clerk, identified only as Martina S., "laughed aloud" at the threat from the bandit because she knew she was protected by a bulletproof glass, said Gordana Vulama, a police spokeswoman.
