Around midnight, about four men targeted a State Bank of India ATM counter in Vidyaranyapura. While two were inside the ATM counter trying to prise open the machine, two stood vigil outside.

The counter did not have any security guard. However, another ATM counter a few blocks away had a security guard. Sensing something amiss, he rushed out and alerted other security guards and beat policemen in the area blowing the whistle.
Their attempt foiled, the gang sped away in a vehicle. Tirupathi, the security guard in his statement, said there were about four people.

A case has been registered at Vidyaranyapura Police Station.  Shortly after, the police suspect the same gang struck at another ATM counter next to Ambedkar College, Mallathahalli. This time it was an unguarded United Bank of India ATM counter.
