Sandra Palad Appanna revealed the perilous circumstances she found herself in.
The young woman and her family were stranded at the side of a dark road after experiencing a puncture.
With no spare tyre, they were at the mercy of criminals passing by.
While waiting for help to arrive, two suspicious-looking men wearing hoodies started approaching them.
As they feared the worst, two Good Samaritans arrived in the form of Officer Belani and Ntleng from the Johannesburg Metro Police Department.
When the two strange men saw the cops, they immediately discarded some sharp objects and quickly fled the scene.
The two dedicated officers calmed the family down and assured them of their safety.
The officers even transported Sandra's brother-in-law to purchase the new tyre.
Briefly.co.za gauged the public reaction via Facebook as the story was shared via the #ImStaying group.
The recognition the two cops received was heartening to see.
Sibusiso Menv was hoping that the officers' attitude would rub off on their colleagues:
"We really thank them and wishing all our JMPD'S & SAPS can be like them."
Ollie Ndumo shared a connection with the police force:
"When others beat JMPD. I felt bad. Guys this Rock. Halala JMPD Halala."
Daantjie Sedibane added,
"Our saviours in uniform are the best."
