It was unknown as to what had happened but an eyewitness saw and heard the two parties arguing.

After the eyewitness left to the second floor of the mall, he saw a person entering the mall with another walking away.

The remaining men in the store then appeared to try and stop the man from leaving by pinning him to the ground and one of the men subsequently left Subway after snatching a white package.

The other man then calmly walked away, as if nothing had happened.

The victim then stands up and screams “ROBBERY” and what he said afterwards was unclear.
