S. AFRICAN POLICE BEING ROBBED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT?

South African police yesterday admitted two officers were robbed of their guns and locked in their own van in the middle of the day – and it was all caught on camera.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - The incident happened mid-afternoon on Tuesday while the officers stopped for lunch at a busy roadside food stall in a northern Johannesburg township, said a police spokesman. 
The robbery was caught on the closed circuit television camera of a nearby business.

The footage shows four men casually walking past the police van and then disappearing from view beneath a tarpaulin where the officers were eating lunch.

They reemerge seconds later with the officers in tow, forcing them into the back of the vehicle.
They lock the van and then ran off. The entire robbery takes less than a minute. 
Police spokesman brigadier Neville Malila said members of the public helped the officers out of the car. The police then called for backup and a chase ensued. 
“The suspects lost control of their vehicle and fired several shots at the police who returned fire,” said Malila. “No injuries were reported.” 
Three of the suspects were arrested and three firearms confiscated, including the two the gang had just stolen from the police.
