Shocking video of an armed robbery caught on camera

The video, caught on a head-cam shows a Canadian man and his British girlfriend being the victims of an armed robbery in Guatemala.

Dan Landsborough was holidaying with Heidi Burton when two men leapt from bushes on the rural road between San Pedro La Laguna and Santiago Atitlan.

A pack containing money was cut from the bike by one of the men, using a machete as the other aimed a weapon at the pair.

Mr Landsborough said he posted the clip as a warning to other tourists about the dangers of travelling in that part of the country.

“The sound is cut part way through at the request of my girlfriend who was understandably distressed,”he told reporters.
