“While the suspects were trying to cut open the one ATM, it appears something inside the ATM caught alight,” he said.
“On one of the ATMs it appears that they tried to cut off the back door vault handle.
“The alarm was triggered during the incident and this led to police and security responding. On arrival the suspects had already fled.”
Beetge said the fire department was called to the scene to assess the fire and extinguishing it.
“Nothing appears to be stolen and the ATMs at this stage are only damaged,” he said.
A case of malicious damage to property is being investigated.
