The method the robbers used is a famous technique where they choke the victim until they're unconscious then rob them of their belongings. This victim managed to wiggle himself free and walked away seemingly unharmed.

The suspects seem to work in a group and act swiftly as soon as they spot their to-be-victim. The crazy part is that this happens in the full view of the public.
