A video was shared on social media which showed cops arriving at a petrol station moments after several men had robbed it.
The video was shared on South Africa Live's Facebook page, which captioned it: "When SAPS decide to stop for a cold drink mid-robbery!!!"
Briefly.co.za could not determine where or when the video was filmed, nor do we have additional information surrounding the circumstances of the robbery.
The video shows three men entering the convenience store at a gas station when one of them draws a gun on the cashier.
The men then exit the shop as a cop car pulls up and a SAPS member immediately reacts by aiming a firearm at the thugs.
The footage sparked quite the reaction on social media and South Africans gave their two cents' worth on the video.
A lot of social media users found the footage amusing and they pointed out the lady at the end, who closed the door as if it was bulletproof.
Letoy Ankiah commented: "The way that lady closed that door like it’s bulletproof."
Keegan Durasami added: "Admire that woman. She closed the fridge door before running behind the counter."
Others added the cops were at the right place at the right time.
Sikes Mosime wrote: "How did the police know that those men were robbers,,,,they readily came out of their car with their guns pointing towards those robbers,,,or the robbers were marked... Satafrikan things."
Mo Zouhair said: "This is what I call right time at the right place."
