Unknown perpetrators hold up motorist transferring company funds

Unknown perpetrators held up the driver of a Škoda Fabia in Hradec Králové on Monday, tasked with the transfer of cash for a local firm, the police say. The vehicle was purposely struck by an assailant backing up a Mitsubishi; he and an accomplice then used a tear gas spray on their target to wrestle away a bag with money. They then made their escape. The Mitsubishi as well as the bag were later found and witnesses said the accomplices made off in another vehicle. The police have not revealed how much money was taken.
