Police in Peterhead are appealing for witnesses following the vandalism of an ATM at the Clydesdale Bank on Broad Street.

A glass bottle was thrown at the machine at around 5pm on Tuesday May 24 causing the screen to shatter.

The machine is now out of service.

Grampian Police said the area was fairly busy when the bottle was thrown and caused a loud noise.

They are appealing for witnesses who may have seen three young men, including one riding a bike, in the area around 5pm.

The Police are also keen to speak to two men who were seen at the junction between Broad Street and Rose Street.

Enquiry Officer PC Malcolm Grant added: “This type of damage is unacceptable and ultimately affects a prominent business and the wider public who use the ATM machine whilst visiting the town centre.”

A spokesperson for Clydesdale Bank said: “We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this might cause our customers, but we are working to repair the damage and expect the ATM to be working again as soon as possible.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information relating to it is asked to contact Grampian Police on 0845 600 5 700 or by email via www.grampian.police.uk or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
