A Debonairs pizza delivery guy is one of the latest victims of crime in Mzansi. The delivery man stopped at a red robot on his way to deliver pizzas in Hillbrow when two thugs hijacked him.
According to the Daily Sun, the incident took place on Saturday night at around 9pm. The delivery guy was approached by two men with a gun.
However, police have since arrested the thugs after finding a toy gun, the bike and empty pizza boxes in their possession.
"The suspects are expected to appear at the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court soon, for possession of a hi-jacked motorbike and possession of a dangerous weapon," Captain Xoli Mbele said.
Some social media users found the story hilarious and the incident became the butt of all jokes.
Kabelo Portia Mkansi commented: "I've been having this ideas for the past 2 years."
Tsw Mashobane added: "That's what they get for being so expensive. One scooter just passed by, i am having ideas now. I wait for him to pass by again and I hit him with a brick, he falls, he gets dizzy or faints, I take pizzas and disappear. Is my plan good?"
Xoli Mchunu wrote: "By the time they appear before the magistrate, their pizza would have been long flushed out of their systems..."
Sibusisio Mashato said: "This is the funniest crime activity I have ever heard about, unfortunately unemployment rate of south Africa is high those guys were hungry."
However, not everyone found the incident funny, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Ally Motaung commented: "I see many people think it is funny until companies stop delivering food by scooters and more people lose their jobs."
