Another armed robbery was caught on video and one young man did his best to try and stop it. Yusuf Abramjee shared the video on his Twitter page. He did not reveal where or when the video was filmed.

In the clip, thugs came into a store with the intent to rob it. While some people laid down on the ground, one young man and a woman were standing at the till.

One of the thugs approached them before slapping the woman against the head. The thug's actions angered the young man who decided to give him a taste of his own medicine.

The unidentified man was beating the robber when his armed buddy showed up. Making the smart decision to not take on an armed man, the young guy decided to stand back.

The beaten thug then decided to get his revenge on the young man and demanded that he hand over his phone.

In other news, Briefly.co.za reported a video of an unknown man has been making its rounds on social media for being downright weird.

The short clip, which was uploaded by Twitter user @TboozeSA, shows a grown man slithering on the ground like a snake. The man seemingly just got out of his BMW car, got on the ground, and started performing the unusual act while being recorded and watched by local metro officers who were on the scene.

In the video, the man slithers up to the police vehicle and then continues to writhe underneath the car. @TboozeSA in his caption of the post joked that it must be a BMW thing.
