CUSTOMERS AND bank staff were stunned yesterday when a man who had terrified them revealed his weapon as he fled the scene of the attempted robbery – a hairbrush. The hooded raider at the Bank of Ireland in Bundoran, Co Donegal, also wore white Umbro socks as gloves to avoid leaving fingerprint

The witness added: “The staff didn’t know what to do, but then the manager came out and quite firmly asked the robber to leave and told him the guards were coming.”

Gardaí later confirmed they arrested a man in his mid-40s not far from the bank. He was being questioned last night at nearby Ballyshannon Garda station.
