A video released by the intelligence bureau of South Africa shows armed gunmen robbing a man they had followed from an Automated Teller Machine believing he had withdrawn lots of money.
As the man drives into his gate, a grey / white car drives past and parks a few houses away from the house.
Three gunmen ambush the man with pistols drawn, shortly after he had just given a signal to someone through a security camera to open his gate.
As they are robbing him, the grey car drives back and the gunmen run towards their car before getting away.
The visibly heart-broken man is left bemused and in tears as he watches them get away with his cash.
It becomes clear that there is a companion in the passenger car who also looks disturbingly shaken.
South Africa struggles with armed crime, with a murder rate of at least 50 people a month.

The suspects in the video have yet to be named, and no-one has been arrested.
Victims and Police are thought to be appealing to anyone with information to come forward.
