POLOKWANE – A group of men who attempted to rob a foreign owned cellphone store in Polokwane CBD on Wednesday afternoon, got more than they bargained for when the victims overpowered them into a corner and took matters back into their own hands.
In the video uploaded by Intelligence Bureau SA’s facebook page, the men can be seen with balaclavas, instructing those in the store to lie on the floor.
As the men approach one of the robbers, who is armed, walk behind the suspect, huddle over him and steer him to a corner of the store where they can be seen hitting and kicking him.
Police spokesperson, Col Moashe Ngoepe confirmed the incident to Review, saying it occurred in the CBD and that one suspect was arrested and a firearm recovered.
“There were three suspects but two managed to escape,” he concluded.
