Group Snatches ATM From Cafe in Southeast Moscow

A group of men snatched an ATM belonging to a commercial bank from the premises of a Subway restaurant in southeast Moscow early Wednesday morning, a news report said.

At about 2 a.m. three young men walked into the Subway located near the Marino metro station and "right in front of customers, broke the cash machine free from its attachment, carried it out, loaded it in a car and fled," Interfax reported Wednesday, citing an unnamed policeman.

It is not immediately clear whether the men were armed, but police said no one was injured.
