The footage, captured on July 13, shows the men forcing their way into the shop and dragging the victim under the flip-open counter, Rekord East reported.

The men are seen emptying out the cash register and stealing items before fleeing the scene.

In a separate incident, CCTV footage emerged showing suspects walking into a restaurant in Wynberg, Johannesburg, and robbing customers at gunpoint.

In the video footage captured in April, one of the suspects appears from behind the counter of the bar and waves his firearm at the workers. Chaos erupts, but some patrons remain unaware of what is happening. As people start panicking, more of the customers realise a robbery is taking place and flee the room.

One customer sitting at the bar has his phone snatched from him and a gun pointed at him as he tries to get it back.

Bramley police spokesperson Warrant Officer Moses Maphakela said the five armed men stole cellphones, money and jewellery. The estimated value of the items stolen adds up to R20 000.
