A 16-year-old in Germany made off with hundreds of euros after he held up a bank using a toy gun, but was quickly apprehended when he fled by bicycle, police said on Saturday.
The teenager managed to pocket "a four-figure sum" after he stormed into a bank in the southern Bavarian town of Bad Fuessing on Friday, brandishing a fake gun and shouting "Hold-up!", local police told AFP.
The boy then raced off on his bike, chased by a witness in a car. He was apprehended by police several minutes later while trying to cross the border into Austria.
He surrendered to officers and admitted to the crime.
