At 3am on Sunday morning a government-run petrol station in Argentina’s capital was the victim of a fuel raid by a bandit of masked bikers.
CCTV footage shows at least 60 motorcyclists riding into the station filling up their bikes and jetting off without paying.
Despite the attendant calling 911 six times, police didn’t arrive at the scene of the crime until after the thieves had fled.

As the gas attendant refuelled an SUV on the other side of the station, he became overwhelmed when numerous roaring bikes invaded the station.
Whilst some bikes went straight to the refuelling pumps, others drove around performing tricks and stunts in the middle of the station.
The SUV and mini-van driver were unable to leave the site and were forced to stay put alongside the attendant.
The Argentine news network TN reported that the attendant called 911 on multiple occasions as the gas raid took place.
The police did not arrive to the scene until after all 60 bikers had fled.
No arrests have yet been made and the amount of money the fuel station has lost from stolen gas is yet unknown.

Buenos Aires congressman Cristian Ritondo took to twitter after the raid to callout security minister Sergio Berni and governor Axel Kicillof for not doing enough to combat crimes like these in the region.
“The flash mob attack piranha is a perfect picture of the decomposition of the Province: 60 motorcyclists stealing and mocking themselves in front of the cameras,” Ritondo tweeted.
He continued by saying: “During my tenure as Buenos Aires minister of security, we multiplied the operations, seized more than 30,000 motorcycles and also promoted the law against motorcycles,' he added. 'When there is a political decision, there are no excuses”.
Argentina has recently upped its governmental security after the failed assassination of Vice President Cristina Fernández last week.
Fernandez was stopped by a Brazilian national who held a gun to her face as she was on her way back to her apartment. The motive for the attempted shooting is yet to be concerned.
