Man tries to rob bank with a spoon

WARSAW (Reuters) - A would-be bank robber held a teaspoon to the neck of a cashier pretending it was a knife, a Polish news website said Tuesday.

But Gazeta.pl said the two women behind the counter at the bank in the southern Polish city of Lublin Monday were not fooled, and scared the man away with their screaming.

Police have compiled a photo-fit of the suspect.
