A video has emerged showing two suspects escape out of the back of a parked SAPS vehicle, allegedly in Pinetown, KZN on Thursday. Watch. WATCH

Durban - Pinetown police are no closer to tracing two robbery suspects who escaped from a parked police van in the central business district last week.

Footage of the two prising the door open and running away went viral on social media, leaving police red-faced.

On Monday, new footage, showing a third man aiding the two by opening one of the latches, emerged.

Police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said that the two men, and the third if he was still to be charged, were still at large.

"Anyone who know their whereabouts is urged to contact Pinetown police on 031 -325 5079 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111," she said.

"The matter is still under investigation," she added.
