A video that is doing the rounds on social media shows a failed robbery attempt at a Bird and Co outlet in Bedfordview, Germiston.
The one-minute and twenty-three seconds CCTV footage was shared by Intelligence Bureau SA via Facebook.
In the video, the suspect is seen entering the establishment before grabbing the cellphone of one of the customers who was enjoying a meal with her family.
However, the suspect thought that he would get away easily but that was not meant to be as he was caught by other customers at the eatery.
