Stunning Video Shows Bullets Fly As Armored Car Crew Narrowly Escape Brutal Heist


Authored by Elias Marat via,

Dramatic dash cam footage from Pretoria, South Africa, shows the moment that the crew of an armored car narrowly escaped an attempt by armed robes to stage a heist.

The shocking video shows a pair of private security officers transporting cash in a bulletproof Toyota truck on April 22 before they suddenly come under attack by armed assailants.

For the first minute of the roughly three-minute-long video, the security guards can be seen routinely driving down a highway.

The vehicle then comes under fire as bullets can be heard slamming into the driver side of the car, with the window by the driver’s side shattering.

The driver, who maintains his calm and composure during the attack, manages to escape amid the traffic. He also seems to slam into one of the two vehicles belonging to the attackers.

“They’re going to shoot. They’re going to f**king shoot,” the driver then says, urging his colleague to pull out the rifle and prepare to defend their lives.

As gunshots continue to ring out, the two drive silently as the tension builds. The driver then shouts to his colleague: “Phone Robbie, phone Josh! Ask them where they are.”

As the video ends, the driver can be seen stopping the vehicle and grabbing his colleague’s rifle. At that point, it becomes clear that the assailants have realized that their attack was futile they had already fled the scene.

The suspects fired several shots at the [Cash-In-Transit] vehicle in an attempt to stop it during a high-speed chase,” said police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo , reports News24. 

“The driver of the CIT vehicle managed to evade the robbers for a while but later stopped in wait for the robbers,” Naidoo added. “The robbers fled without taking any money. No arrests have yet been made.”

Online users have praised the steel nerves of the armored car’s crew in navigating what could have been a deadly attack.


  1. I’ve seen a lot of negative comments about the black guy from people who don’t seem to know anything about gunfights, or anything at all.

    As I see it, he stayed calm, didn’t panic, followed orders and, very tellingly, maintained excellent trigger discipline while probably being under fire for the first time ever. The first thing I thought watching it was “That young guy’s trigger discipline shows some good training”. I couldn’t ask much more from a guy sitting beside me while under fire in a vehicle ambush.

    Sure he might’ve done better….responded faster to orders or whatever. He also could’ve curled up in a ball on the floor of the truck and blubbered with his head in his hands. There’s so many Keyboard Kommandos out there with there stupid “I would’ve done this…” BS. Like wind down the armoured windows which saved both their lives and return fire.
