WATCH | No smash, no grab: Tough car window foils Joburg robbers

04 October 2018 - 09:02 By TimesLIVE

What are those windows made of?

That was the general reaction after CCTV footage was posted to Facebook showing a failed robbery attempt in Morningside, Johannesburg on Wednesday night.

In the footage, a BMW can be seen pulling up to the entrance of a complex around 6.30pm. Before the first boom can close, three men run into the entrance. A man in a red jacket tries to break the driver's window only for his weapon to bounce impotently off it. He tries again. Fails. A third desperate attempt has equally no success as the BMW drives off. 

Having failed completely in their mission, the three men run off into the night.
