Cape Town - Two suspects got the slap of their lives when they tried to rob people using a toy gun.
The men, who were later identified as members of the Hard Livings gang, were held captive by the community until police came to arrest them.
The suspects tried their luck with people in Portland, Mitchells Plain, who were heading to work at 7am on Monday.
A community member, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they heard screaming and spotted the two running off with someone’s handbag.
They were chased down in Hazeldene Road.
