In the 16-second video filmed by a fellow driver, one can see two suspects approaching a Volkswagen. One suspect with a firearm in hand moves towards the passenger side and demands what looks like a handbag.

The other is seen trying to open the driver's door but does not succeed. They flee with a white vehicle. 

The woman filming the video is audibly shocked.
