Victim pulled a real gun – boys (11 and 12) attacked the tobacconist with a soft gun


Armed with a softgun pistol, an 11- and a 12-year-old wanted to rob a tobacco shop in Vienna-Meidling on Wednesday evening. The attempted robbery continued: When the tobacconist pulled out a real gun, the boys fled.

The two boys were quickly investigated based on his information and CCTV footage: a schoolmaster from an educational institution near the crime scene identified them, police said.

The duo had arrived at the tobacconist on Altmannsdorfer Straße shortly before 5:30 p.m. “The two suspects allegedly threatened the tobacconist with a weapon and demanded money,” said police spokesman Daniel Fürst. “The tobacconist succeeded in forcing the two suspects to flee by extracting a firearm that he legally possessed.” It was a Glock that legally registered the man.

The school principal identified the boys
After identification by the schoolmaster, the police soon discovered the 11-year-old. He was stopped on Unter-Meidlinger Strasse around 7 p.m. “after a short chase”. Shortly after, the second boy was caught. The softgun stayed away. However, the 11-year-old admitted that he and his friend had the gun with them at the tobacconist’s shop, spokesman Fürst said.

The officers handed the children over to their parents. You should be interviewed later today. The investigation is being conducted by the Vienna State Criminal Investigation Department, southern branch, robbery in investigation area. It concerns the suspicion of attempted robbery with violence.
