Sterling Bank of Asia statement
According to the initial report of our security department, robbers who tried holding up an establishment nearby threw explosives as a diversionary tactic and it exploded near our ATM. Four were injured and they were immediately brought to the Asian Hospital for treatment. As a result of this incident, we have stepped up security and increased the number of guards. Our BF Homes Paranaque and Las Pinas branches will be servicing the requirements of our Alabang clients for the meantime. We are fast tracking the repairs so that our Alabang branch can get back to business as usual.
