CCTV footage showing part of the crime spree that unfolded after the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday has surfaced.
SowetanLIVE posted the footage on its website earlier today. The chaos unfolded at a Sasol garage near FNB stadium, where the Festival was held.
As Briefly.co.za earlier reported, hundreds of people converged at the garage to wait for transport home. However, criminal elements saw this as an opportunity to mug them.
The video shows several incidents of muggings and moments of panic in the crowd. According to SowetanLIVE, the crime spree lasted five hours.
A police van is only seen arriving at the garage at 2am. Witnesses also claimed on social media that the police were nowhere to be seen during the chaos.
However, police spokesperson Vish Naidoo insisted that cops did not leave their posts until hours after the concert ended.
SAPS appealed to victims to come forward and open cases. Police have reportedly arrested seven suspects so far.
