Johannesburg - Three armed robbers were caught on camera when they robbed a Chinese national in her car in Kensington, Johannesburg on Tuesday.

A dashcam video of the robbery has gone viral.

News24 understands she was not injured in the attack, which happened in Langerman Drive. The woman was sitting in her car at a traffic light when armed men wearing balaclavas jumped out of a silver Audi stopped in front of her. The video shows them pointing guns at her before disappearing off screen.

She opened a case at the Cleveland police station, News24 was told.

The registration number of the Audi is believed to be DF78WJ GP.

Gauteng police said they had no knowledge of a video doing the rounds. Police spokesperson Captain Tsekiso Mofokeng asked for a link of the video to be sent to him so he could get more information of the incident.
