Crime is an issue in South Africa - there is no doubt about it. However, it is still shocking to see the violent incidents even though they are a daily occurrence.
A video which was shared on Intelligence Bureau SA's Facebook page on Tuesday shows an armed robbery in a shopping centre.
Briefly.co.za gathered the Dion Wired shop at Cresta shopping centre was robbed by armed thugs.
Gunshots are heard in the footage as people yell and run away. Before long, a security guard, who had been shot, is brought to an elevator to seek medical attention.
South Africans were understandably shocked but they were happy that the security guard appeared to be okay.
Matthew Tyler Saunders wrote: "Thank you Lord that the guard is okay. What started out as a normal day could have been his last."
However, some were in awe of the man called Charlie, who moved towards the armed robbers at the end of the video.
Richard Och commented: "Why is Charlie so stubborn? What is he going to see? Come back Charlie."
Cohen Chakwizira added: "Charlie Charlie this is a war zone and all you do is to walk in the territory of the enemy empty handed. How foolish!!!"
Marlene Roux wrote: "So Charlie is actually Chuck Norris?"
Taahir Mia said: "But why Charlie don’t listen?"
Tshepo Shaka Romba Sekgobela commented: "Ai bo Charlie like acting clever, shot was fired and he almost crushed into a glass jiki jiki Charlie wants to attack."
