Another harrowing video has surfaced online showing one more family falling victim to crime in South Africa.
CCTV footage of an attempted armed hijacking was posted on South Africa Live's Facebook page. The video shows three women pulling up to a house when thugs stop behind them before hijacking the car.
One of the victims closed the gate, slowing down the thugs who were trying to steal the Volkswagen GTi.
However, a man is then seen running out of the house, throwing something at the hijackers and effectively scaring them off.
According to the man, who can be heard speaking on the video in Afrikaans, he fought back with the first thing he could get his hands on - a stapler.
Take a look at the video below:
Briefly.co.za previously reported on another incident where a victim fought back. A motorcyclist was caught on CCTV opening fire on a suspected robber in Johannesburg.
The man had just returned home from a drive with his dog when the thug attempted to rob him. His quick actions led to social media users dubbing him "Mzansi's John Wick".
