GoPro camera films man as he is robbed at gun point in Cape Town
The assailants did not seem to notice the camera on his helmet
A man who was robbed as he cycled across Cape Town in South Africa filmed the moment he was ambushed at gunpoint with a camera affixed to his helmet.
The man was riding his bike while wearing a GoPro camera on his helmet to film his route through Somerset West when the assailant and two others ran up and stopped him in his tracks.
He quickly dismounted and handed over his keys, bike and mobile phone, explaining that was all has on his person.
The thief did not seem to notice the camera on his head and at one point even appeared to be looking at it, ensuring that the whole incident was recorded – including a clear shot of his face.
After taking all of his belongings, the three men pointed him in a direction to walk and ran off. The victim took his camera off before the video ended.
He posted a video of the attack on YouTube under the name Lucky Jakkals, and wrote: “Armed gunman and 2 others stopped myself and took cellphone, car keys, oakleys and bike.
“Fortunately they did not have a clue what a GOPRO was and this is the evidence that will assist in their procecution! [sic]”
