Bike Robbery Caught On Camera

Malcolm Fox was out riding in Somerset West on Saturday and found himself face to face with a gun in the last few kilometres of his ride. The three gunmen took his cellphone, car keys, sunglasses and bike. But they left him wearing his helmet, with his GoPro attached, filming the entire incident!

Thanks to this footage and superb work by the police, the good news is that all three suspects have been arrested, and Malcolm has received his cell and bike back already! We commend him for remaining calm throughout the encounter.

We urge you to remain vigilant at all times on your rides. Be careful out there!

    Three were caught? I counted 4.
    AT 0:57 in the vid there is fourth individual wearing a hoodie and carrying a stick. There’s no mention of that person. Either one of the thugs, or a witness to the whole thing.

    This is absolutely shocking. Cyclist have the right to feel safe and yet this is what happens. Congrats on getting the goods back but we can’t keep riding is fear. Such BS

    Am glad that Malcolm got away without being hurt – and that he kept his cool and stayed so calm – thank goodness for the go-pro and them not knowing what it is or noticing it – so that justice can be served

    It is sad that people are so use this type of incident that we are glad that the person did not get shot. It should not have happened at all. Very sad.

    Duidelik het hulle nie geweet wat op sy helmet is nie. Dis hoekom ek verkies om in geslote areas te ry as ek nie op die pad is nie. Bv natuurreservate (Groenkloof, ens). Maar dit is baie bindend.
