A man used two gun and explosive lookalikes in an attempt to rob a bank in Phuc Tho District, Hanoi on Monday afternoon.

According to the Phuc Tho police, at around 12:00 pm on Monday, a man wearing a uniform jacket of a ride-hailing brand entered the transaction office of BIDV Bank in Gach Town in Phuc Tho with an object that looked like a gun and a mass wrapped with black tape that he claimed to be explosive in his hands. 

Whether the gun is real or fake was yet to be determined.

The man then threatened the bankers and took away some money.
