A thug learned the hard way that four outnumbers one - even if you have a gun. A video was shared on social media which showed four men teaching a robber a lesson.
On Wednesday, a social media user - who was identified by his Twitter handle @Vukile_vee - shared a video of a botched robbery.
"Well he deserved it, how can you be so relaxed while attempting to rob 4 men and you're alone," he captioned the post.
The video showed an armed thug attempting to rob a bottle store with several people in it. However, one of the victims saw an opportunity to overthrow the armed assailant and he took it.
Briefly.co.za gathered that three other men joined in and the thug ended up getting a serious beating, with one of the men throwing a brick at his head at the end.
It was not revealed where the incident took place, but according to the time stamp on the video, it happened on 23 May.
The footage sparked quite the reaction and social media users felt the thug got a taste of instant karma.
Twitter user @MacDelela commented: "Big ups to the guy who decided to take action... could’ve gone either way."
Another tweep, @Demi_Nivad, added: "Lol that guy with a brick..."
