This is the moment a thief pulls a large machete on a bus driver after his fake gun breaks when he tries to cock it.

The incident was filmed by a bus CCTV camera in the city of Guadalajara in the western Mexican state of Jalisco and the video was posted on Twitter where it has been widely circulated.

In the video, the thug is seen wearing a hoodie as the bus comes to a stop and the doors open.

The suspect then wanders over to the driver and removes a gun from his pocket which breaks when he cocks the apparently fake firearm.

Reports said that the unnamed bus driver immediately knew it was a fake gun and did not want to hand over any money.

He is initially dismissive to the thug in front of him, but changes his tune when the man pulls out a large machete.

The thief is seen gloating as he threatens the bus driver, who hands over some personal belongings including his phone.

The suspect also helps himself to a handful of change from the cash box before bending down to pick up the gun part that came flying off when he cocked the fake weapon.

Reports said that several passengers were sitting at the back of the bus at the time of the robbery.

The incident is being investigated by the authorities, but the thug has not yet been identified, according to local media.
