The gang can be seen running amok around the showroom, smashing the windscreens with poles as one of the attackers openly brandishes a gun.

The attack, which took place yesterday in Cape Town, South Africa, is being investigated by police.

Separate footage, uploaded to Twitter, shows the destruction from a different angle as a staff member walks through The Toy Shop dealership after the attack.

Paperwork is seen strewn across floor amid the destruction.

A police spokesperson said: ‘The circumstances surrounding the incident are under investigation.

‘According to information, about 40 suspects entered the business premises, threatened the employees with firearms and demanded two vehicles. 

‘They were not given vehicles, thereafter, the suspects smashed windows and lights of vehicles on display.

‘Eight vehicles were damaged. The possibility that the incident is extortion-related cannot be ruled out.’

According to reports, the attack took place after two suspects entered the dealership and demanded cars but when they were denied the attack took place.
