    Bank ordered to pay robbery victim

    An Austrian bank has been ordered to pay a customer almost 10,000 compensation for being attacked and robbed in the street.

    The woman had picked up 20,000 cash from the Bank Austria Credit Anstalt in Vienna after ordering it by telephone.

    She was then attacked by two men, who sprayed pepper spray into her eyes before grabbing her bag, as she walked back to her apartment just 500 metres away.

    The Vienna Industrial Court ruled in favour of the woman, who claimed the men had been watching her collect the money, and found the bank partly responsible.

    The judge said the bank manager should have invited the woman "into a discrete, secluded room" instead of giving her the money in full view of other customers.
