The National Commercial Bank, NCB, says its assessing operations to ensure the safety and well-being of customers when using its facilities islandwide.

This comes after armed men attempted to steal an Automated Banking Machine, ABM, at Bank House Mall in Mandeville, Manchester, Tuesday morning.

The gunmen, who reportedly used a metal bar to beat the security guard on duty, vandalized the machine, but were unsuccessful in retrieving cash from it.

NCB is advising customers in the area to utilize their digital channels in conducting businesses as they conduct further assessments with the relevant authorities.
