Camera footage shows four alleged robbers outside a gold shop in Binh Duong Province, March 3, 2024.

The two men and two women arrived at the shop on two motorbikes at around noon. One of them pointed a gun at the owners as others broke glass cabinets to take a large amount of jewelries.

They left before the police arrived to inspect the scene.

Quy, the shop's owner, said the robbery happened in just more than a minute. Quy said he and his wife did not dare to fight back as the gang had a gun while their children were inside the house.

He said around 20 taels of gold worth nearly VND1 billion (US$40,560) were taken. A tael of gold equals 37.5 grams or 1.2 ounces.

Police are looking for the robbers.
