Meanwhile, locals have had this to say about the incident:

Musa Sbewu said:

"Such incidents will happen and possibly become widespread since the SAPS is said to be the most corrupt department and the justice system seems lenient towards criminals."

Lulu Chilwane said:

"They have been complaining about a group of boys walking around at night with pangas, robbing people of their belongings and the police did nothing. I just hope they dealt with the right perpetrators."

In other Briefly News reports, a local man was caught completely off-guard this week when he witnessed what appeared to be a kidnapping in progress. He captured parts of the terrifying scene in a video that has since gone viral on social media.

In the short clip, a driver can be seen holding his camera phone in the direction of passing traffic. He appears to be following a speeding taxi down a quiet Pretoria freeway.
