Woman fights off two robbers in her house

A 46-year-old woman has managed to defeat two robbers who entered her department by punching one and scaring him off and then locking the second in her house until the police could arrive.

The woman, who lives in Floridsdorf, in Vienna, was woken up on Monday morning, around 11.00 am, by an intruder. A 35-year-old man had entered her apartment and had woken her up whilst making noises when searching for money in her living room on the top floor of a building on Floridsdorfer street.

The woman managed to get out of the apartment when the intruder entered in to another room but then saw his accomplice on the stairs, who she hit. The man immediately fled the scene, after which the woman went back to the apartment, got the key and locked the door from the outside, leaving the second intruder inside her apartment. The woman then went to her neighbours and called the police.

Police were unable to find the first man, who had fled to the next door apartment from the balcony, despite using a helicopter during the search. The second robber was arrested by police in the apartment and is now in custody.

The man confessed that they needed money and asked for forgiveness. He also told the police that in addition to the man who was on the staircase, there was also another man, who helped him with the robbery.
