Dashcam footage shows smash-and-grab in traffic jam

File: A daring smash-and-grab situation was caught on dashcam by another motorist. Video: YouTube

JOHANNESBURG - Yet another motorist has fallen victim to a smash-and-grab robber, this time along Witkoppen Road near the Cambridge Road intersection in Paulshof, in the north of Johannesburg.

The daring caper was caught on dashcam by another motorist.

In the footage, a man appears to beg next to the cars stuck in traffic.

As he walks past a white Land Rover Discovery, the robber walks back, looks inside the car, paces himself on the pavement and then throws an object at the window.

He then climbs halfway into the vehicle before running across the road and jumping over a small bridge.

It's not clear if anything was taken.
