A bank robbery at a subbranch of the Agricultural Bank of China in Shanghai was foiled in just five minutes Monday by bank staffers and people in and outside the bank. The robbery was motivated by loss of money in gambling during the World Cup.

The surveillance video showed a man walking into the bank in a black shirt and a black hat, putting a knife against the neck of a woman customer manager and asking a clerk for money.

The robber threatened to kill the woman if the clerk failed to turn over the money on time.

Upon hearing the alarm, the security guards evacuated some of the customers and locked the door to prevent the robber from fleeing. The janitor and citizens joined the security guards in cornering and eventually pinning down the robber.

Police officers later arrived and took him away.
