- A controversial video revealed how a female biker evaded an alleged robbery attempt
- As she stops at an intersection, a man approaches her, demands "his money" and attempts to take her vehicle's keys
- Many social media users reacted in anger to the motorists that failed to help her, but others felt the incident may have been staged
A woman drove her motorbike through the streets of Johannesburg and nearly fell victim to an alleged robbery attempt.
As she stopped her vehicle at an intersection, a man appears out of nowhere and starts harassing her to give 'his money'.
The female biker seems shell-shocked and threatens to call the police, but the strange man continues his aggressive behaviour.
A passing motorist gets out of his vehicle to chase the man away, but he soon returns and attempts to grab her keys.
After a heated debate, she eventually speeds away from the scene.
Briefly.co.za noted that the video went viral and sparked an angry reaction from many South Africans.
However, others questioned the woman's behaviour and suspected that the incident may have been staged.
Rainier Fryer revealed it could be the man's Modus Operandi:
"Not the first time this guy has done this. Helped an elderly lady a while back with this same guy. This happened also at the same place which is Voortrekker Rd in Kempton Park right at the on and off ramp to the R24."
Siyabonga C-ya Mkhatshwa sympathised with the victim:
"It’s so sad to match such bad doings in our very own communities and people not caring because they don’t know you or care about you."
An enraged Cheryl Poole Vd Merwe said,
"To all the brave men that just drove passed this lady in destress without coming to her aid, hope your wife, daughter, mother, sister never lands up in the same situation and no one to help them."
Sabrina Collins started to poke holes in the alleged robbery theory:
"Cheryl Poole Vd Merwe this seems so staged. Even the supposed attack don’t seem real enough."
Jaco Lamprecht added, "Totally agree. YouTube video! Idiots risk their lives daily to have some shit to post on social media. You can see how see keep looking at the camera for confirmation that it is rolling. UFB!"
