Is is no secret the crime rate is high in South Africa, but every time a video shows an unsuspecting citizen falling victim to it, it terrifies the rest of the country.
South Africans were left shocked over a brazen robbery in broad daylight, which was captured on video and shared on social media.
Twitter user Yusuf Abramjee shared a video of men robbing an oblivious civilian on Commissioner Street in Johannesburg's CBD, Briefly.co.za gathered.
The footage shows several men searching their victim for valuables before making off with his goods and leaving him on the pavement.
Needless to say, the video stirred up mixed emotions on social media. Some tweeps felt bystanders could have helped the man, but nobody cared to reach out to him, not even when he was laying on the ground after the robbery.
Social media user @theyellowcap wrote, "And useless bystanders watch and don't even help afterwards either. This country should be ashamed and discussed at themselves more for that than the actual robbers. So much for #standtogether."
However, others expressed the importance of looking after oneself, adding it might be too dangerous to try and help.
Others expressed their concerns that thugs are running the show in South Africa, and no one is safe anymore.
