As part of the police lockdown of the surrounding area, public bus No. 50 stopped travelling to the shopping mall.

The bomb alarm proved to be false, Bratislava Regional Police spokeswoman Karina Považanová told the TASR newswire later in the day. Police patrols didn't find any explosives. The police have already launched a criminal investigation into panic-mongering.
