    Armed robber Phillip Niere is suing police in Germany after they arrested him with his trousers round his ankles.

    The 38-year-old was arrested after he threatened to kill five staff at Noris Bank in Aachen, west Germany, if they did not dispense £200,000 to him immediately.

    He was caught out when a cashier pushed the silent alarm button in the bank without him realising, and police soon surrounded the building.

    Police managed to convince him that if he handed himself in, he would be treated nicely.

    He surrendered after an hour and he was removed from the bank by a police officer, and taken down the street with his trousers around his ankles and his jumper dangling over his head.

    Mr Niere said he was left ‘humiliated’ after being led away with his underwear exposed.

    His lawyer said: 'The handcuffs are understandable, but what the police have to explain is why he was brought out with his jeans pulled down and his underwear on show.

    ‘It is clearly a breach of his human rights.'
