A man was held by members of the Hawkeye security team after he allegedly robbed an employee of the company last week.

Reports are that the staff member was exiting an ABM machine when the man approached her on a motorcycle and asked her for directions.

After the woman stated that she was not able to assist, the man reportedly warned her that he had a firearm and proceeded to rob her of her belongings including her bank cards and mobile phone.

The female reported the incident to her colleagues including armed security guards who subsequently set up a sting operation in which the alleged robber was apprehended. A search of the man's bag reportedly revealed a number of stolen items including over three dozen bank cards, health cards and mobile phones.

A video of the incident was released by Hawkeye. Watch it below.
