Reports reaching Loop News are that detectives have collected video footage which captured the images of the men while they were carrying out the attack on the KingAlarm officer, which Loop News has also secured a copy of.

"Based on footage that was captured, authorities will be using this evidence in their manhunt for the perpetrators," a police source said.

A four-minute video captured on CCTV showed two men entering to the facility where the guard was working.

The men were seen waiting until all the customers had left from the business outlet before they accosted the security guard.

The video also showed that one of the attackers had even borrow a pen from the security guard to sign a document, seemingly in an attempt to hide his true intention.

The footage showed that as the men were about to carry out the attack, two customers were entering the facility. In response, one of the attackers pushed the customers outside the door and attempted to close the door.

The men then ran from the scene.
