A video which has gone viral on social media, captured an armed robbery attack which went wrong at La Gratitude Circle in Lonehill Sandton, South Africa.
The viral video captured moment some thugs in a white Mercedes Benz pulled up on two white guys they wanted to rob. A Facebook group Nationwide Crime SA, disclosed that the men in the Benz followed the man when he was on his bike with his dog from Village Church.
The robbery however took a different turn after the man the robbers tried to rob pulled a gun on them and started firing, making them flee the scene almost immediately.
The boom slowed them down. As I got home, I put my bike in my car port, park my truck inside. My son came out, took my dog inside.
“They then came past in the white Mercedes, I thought It was neighbours or visitors to a few houses down from me,” the man told Nationwide Crime SA.
The man said they then made a U-turn and came back parking quite aggressively and the passenger’s door opened.
“The guy with a pistol in his hand got out, when I saw the gun, I knew it was a robbery, I drew mine and started firing. They then sped away. On the way out they crashed through the boom.”
