In the second video, the two cops are seen cuffing the suspect on the ground as he initially appears to resist arrest.

However, one cop kneels on the Angolan man’s back as his colleague places the handcuffs on the suspect’s wrists.

According to reports, no one was injured during the robbery attempt.

It is currently unclear if the detained man has been charged yet.
