WHEN a man tried to carry out an armed assault on a branch of Bankia in Alaquas near Valencia he didn’t count on the brave actions of local residents. They acted swiftly to prevent his escape by holding the bank door closed to stop his exit. Earlier he had held a knife to the throat of a female bank clerk and was trying to escape with the €1,300 he had been handed over in the robbery.  While he was trapped in the bank, local police soon arrived and arrested the man, identified as a 41 year old who was believed to have taken drugs prior to the robbery.
