The State has provisionally dropped charges against the 10 men accused of vandalising luxury vehicles at the Toy Shop in Milnerton, Cape Town.
National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) regional spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said: "The State provisionally withdrew charges against all the accused in order to pursue further investigation before presenting its case before the court."
The 10 men, aged 22 to 47, were arrested through a police tracing operation.
They face charges of business robbery, malicious damage to property and extortion.
The matter was supposed to be heard on Friday for formal bail proceedings.
CCTV footage shows a large group of men entering the dealership.
Seconds later, they are seen smashing the windows of the vehicles and physically attacking the staff.
The incident occurred in less than a minute and, before it ended, another individual cornered two of the dealership's staff and demanded their valuables.
According to reports, around 40 people came into the store and demanded two vehicles.
They were denied, after which they damaged eight cars.
Since the incident occurred, allegations of extortion have emerged.
