Terrifying footage captured the moment a gang armed with Tasers robbed two men of their watches in the middle of a busy London street.

A bystander can be heard shouting ‘leave them alone’ as one of the hooded men fires a stun gun at one man.

The crackling sound and bright flashes could be seen coming from the Taser as the muggers incapacitate their targets.

One of the victims drops to the floor and the masked men appear to search his pockets looking for valuables.

Another of the gang members could also be seen holding a knife.

A man filming the incident from above shouts at the group: ‘I am calling the police. Police, Police, Police,’ but the group continue their assault.

After appearing to find some items, the thugs jump into a black getaway car before driving off down the street.

A Met Police spokesman said: ‘Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a robbery in Knightsbridge.

‘At around 12:05am on Tuesday, November 16, a group were walking along when they were approached by three males who threatened the group before stealing two watches.

‘They also assaulted two males in the group.

‘The suspects – who were armed with two stun guns and a knife – then fled in a car driven by a fourth person.

‘None of the victims suffered serious injuries during the incident.

‘No arrests, enquiries continue.’

Footage of the attack was posted on social media, provoking an angry response from Londoners. 

One person commented: ‘Robbing them for their watches. Mental.’  

There have been concerns around gangs resorting to tasers in robberies and assaults, with some devices disguised as phones, torches and even lipsticks

Another added: ‘Probably had an expensive item they wanted sad idiots.’

A third wrote: ‘Every time like these actions are happen on #knightsbridge London.’

There have previously been concerns around gangs switching from knives to tasers in robberies and assaults, with some devices disguised as phones, torches and even lipsticks.

It was reported that some stun guns used by criminals were up to 100 times more powerful than the Tasers being used by police forces.

The cruel tactic has been going on for several years, with an FOI request in 2015 finding that Scotland Yard had destroyed 249 stun guns, crossbows and harpoons the previous year.

The devices can apparently be bought online anonymously and shipped from as far away is Asia for as little as £70, The Times reported.

Surrey police seized two stun guns disguised as mobile phones in March and two ‘ultra-charged’ JSJ 811 Tasers from China.
