- A group of thugs were caught on video robbing a fast-food restaurant
- Chicken Licken Kwathema was taken over by armed men
- Staff and customers were caught in the terrifying situation last week
Earlier this week, a video was shared by the Intelligence Bureau SA on Facebook showing thugs targetting a fast-food restaurant.
According to the description, the Kwathema Chicken Licken was robbed by a group of armed men last week Friday.
The footage shows the men entering the restaurant just after 9pm the night before, taking everyone hostage and forcing them to the back of the store.
One of the thugs ransacks a terrified customer lying on the ground, even stealing the shoes off his feet. It was not revealed what or how much was stolen, nor has any information on the suspects and arrests been given.
The video gathered over 258 000 views and South Africans expressed their opinions in the comment section.
Xolani Mtimkulu commented:
"Even Hot Wings are not safe in this country."
Take a look at the video below:
Another video was shared showing what happened after the thugs entered the back of the store.
The Chicken Licken outlet is not the first fast-food restaurant by far to suffer at the hands of criminals. Briefly.co.za previously reported that a McDonalds in Bedfordview was robbed by armed assailants.
A video of the incident was shared online and Mzansi was left shaken by the footage.
