South African mountain biker gets robbed on camera

A South African mountain-biker had a lucky escape when he was ambushed by armed muggers at the weekend.

Cyclist Malcolm Fox was out riding on a popular bike trail in Somerset West, near Cape Town when three men stopped him and took his car keys, mobile phone and wallet.

However, the trio were not aware that his helmet-mounted video camera recorded the whole incident.

South African newspaper, the Citizen, reports that three men were arrested on the basis of the footage Fox's camera recorded.
