A victim decided to fight back against his assailant in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, recently and a video of the incident was shared on social media.
Crime is without a doubt an issue in the country- everyday unsuspecting South Africans fall victim to some sort of injustice.
However, one man decided enough is enough and he turned the tables on the mugger. On Monday, a video was posted on social media by Intelligence Bureau SA, which showed a man fighting back after a thug tried to mug him.
At first, the mugger threatens the man with a broken bottle while he rummages through the victim's pockets.
However, at a certain point in the attack, the victim spots an opportunity to fight back- and, he successfully lands a massive first blow.
The punch caught the assailant off-guard and he stumbled on the sidewalk. The victim then jumps at the opportunity and is joined by a couple of other men, who apprehended the suspect.
The video gathered quite the reactions and Briefly.co.za decided to take a look at a couple of comments from Facebook users.

Deon Van Der Westhuizen added: "Man. Thats an old cowboy movie. The Madal's hat did not even come off."
