WATCH: Robber run over by cash in transit vehicle

accreditation

A video showing an armoured vehicle killing a robber by driving over him, has been circulating on social media.

But the footage is from a cash-in-transit heist which happened on October 2 in Krugersdorp, and not a new incident as has been speculated.

A G4S crew was attacked by a group of five armed men.

"They were attacked while returning to the armoured vehicle, having completed a cash collection service at a customer in Krugersdorp," Wendy Hardy, G4S Cash Solutions' spokesperson told News24 on October 12. 

She confirmed that the footage is from the same incident. 

Hardy said the robber sustained fatal injuries when he ran in front of the vehicle and was subsequently run over. 

"The G4S Security officer was shot in the leg and he is recovering from his injuries."

The robbers fled the scene in a grey Audi Q7 with an undisclosed amount of money.
