This is the terrifying moment a gang of thieves on mopeds robbed a Porsche driver at knifepoint in broad daylight in south-east London.

Shocking footage showed the gang of four, on two bikes, pulling up beside the car before one of them threatened the driver with a blade.

One of the pillion passengers pointed the knife towards the victim, a man in his 30s, as he sat in traffic in Lewisham.

His accomplices appeared to make threats towards him as the incident unfolded in Ladywell Road on July 6.

The passenger holds up what looks like a knife to the driver through the open window, while his accomplice apparently make demands.

Another moped then pulls up behind them.

The two scooters eventually turn around and ride off.

During the frightening incident, the Porsche driver was reportedly robbed of his watch. He suffered no injuries and later alerted police to the incident.

Passersby at the scene did not appear to realise what was happening at the time the robbery unfolded, according to the footage.

The woman in the car with the dashcam could be heard shouting towards the Porsche: “I’ve got you on camera. I’ve got it all on camera.”

No arrests have been made.
