The lockdown has been a huge talking point and many South Africans have been up in arms regarding some of the strict regulations.

One benefit for the country has been the drop in crime rate with more people indoors and a strong police presence on the roads.

However, based on a video shared by Twitter user Yusuf Abramjee(@Abramjee), it could soon be a case of business as usual.

The footage revealed how a courier vehicle was robbed of its cargo, as the driver attempted a delivery.

Before the driver could enter the customer's residence, a vehicle blocked him off and he was overpowered by the thugs.

The two assailants quickly headed back to their vehicles and were seemingly about to make a swift exit, but the delivery driver then decided to vacate his car and made a run for it.

The thugs welcomed the invitation and had a field day, going back and forth to collect more items.

"Wow! Crime is back with uplifting of lock down! We are back to being terrorised by criminals."

Victor malada (@Victormalada) suggested an inside job:

"Nxaa this courier guys are thieves, they know the stock which was carried worth more cash, never in a day thieves can just Rob a courier without knowing what's inside."

Mancingelani (@Shivambu71) shared an observation:

"The thugs went back to their car ready to drive away but the courier guy gave them a chance when he get out of the car instead of driving out since the car is small and the is enough space for it to turn around."

MOHAMED FEROZ (@mohamed_feroz) asked,

"Where is MR Cele & his 76,000 military troops & police ? They busy arresting cigarette sellers instead of arresting & fighting real crime."

Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that a man has been arrested after he was caught dangling from a window.

He allegedly attempted to break into the house but got stuck instead.
