On Tuesday, a video was shared on social media which showed a cash-in-transit security guard fighting back after a couple of armed thugs tried to rob him in a shopping center.
"In case you have any thoughts about enriching yourself through criminality... Know that you are fair game too!!!" the video was captioned.
Although the post does not reveal where or when the video was filmed, Briefly.co.za saw a social media user, @libgrimm, said it happened in Virginia.
"This was last Sunday at Checkers Virginia. Respect to the security guy. He did his job," he said.
Social media users were quick to react to the footage and give their two cents' worth on the video.
Twitter user, @Puseletso17, commented: "Was that criminal in red really trying to take cover under a trolley?"
Another tweep, @Lothando12, added: "Honestly if he survives this, man must just accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Testimony phela lena."
Social media user @shanduVanN said: "This looks unreal like a movie scene. Wow the guard was very smooth."
Botshelo, who goes by the Twitter handle @botshelo_sm, wrote: "I can’t stop laughing. Crime doesn’t pay shem."
