JOHANNESBURG – Four men followed a family home from OR Tambo International Airport on Sunday and robbed them in their driveway.

Claire Gopaul, the wife of a victim, posted two videos taken off CCTV cameras showing the robbery.

“Four armed robbers followed my husband from the airport after picking up his family from their overseas trip,” she wrote in the caption.

The video shows a silver Hyundai Accent parking in the family's car in their driveway and three men running towards the vehicle.

A man in the a grey hoodie forces open a car door and threatens the family while two other men remove the luggage from the car boot and the trailer.

The other suspect remains in their getaway car.

Gopaul said the robbers first asked whether they had a gun or not.

When they realised there were no guns, the driver of the vehicle reversed into the driveway and the robbers took their belongings.

The robbery took place within a space of about four minutes.
