Footage has emerged (scroll down for video) on Twitter of the moment that members of the public descend upon an armed robber after he tripped over while feeling from a jeweller that he had just robbed.
At the beginning of the footage, several suspects can be seen looting the jewellers as stunned members of the public look on in astonishment.
Two males can be seen trying to stop the robbery, but they are quickly prevented from doing so by one of the robbers who can be seen brandishing some sort of weapon.
Two of the motorbike gang then run from the shop, raising weapons above their heads towards the members of the public who are trying to prevent them from getting away.
However, as the third suspect runs away from the scene, he falls over as four males pursue him.
As he tries to get up with a large bag, a male who had been chasing after him quickly pushes him down to the ground as three other males join the efforts to detain him before the arrival of the police.
At one point, the suspect tries to stand up, but he is quickly overpowered and placed back on the floor.
Forty seconds after the suspects ran from the jewellers, armed police arrive on the scene and take the suspect who had been detained on the floor into custody.
