East London - Police are investigating the kidnapping of an Eastern Cape bank manager by robbers who forced him to unlock the First National Bank at Peddie to steal money, police said on Tuesday.

Eastern Cape Hawks spokesperson Captain Ernest Sigobe said the bank manager and his assistant were kidnapped by six armed men from the manager's flat in Peddie near King Williamstown.

"They were instructed to open the bank where the robbers took an undisclosed amount of money," said Sigobe in a statement.

Sigobe said no-one was injured in the incident.

No arrests were made but a breakthrough was expected soon.

The police urged the community to come forward with information on the incident and to contact the Hawks' office in East London.
