Crime is on the rise in SA and a recent video uploaded to social media is proof of this. @Abramjee recently posted a video to Twitter of a robbery at a Sasol in Port Elizabeth. The one minute, eight second clip shows a man entering the cashier's area.
The assailant proceeds to push the cashier around until he releases the cash register filled with money. The assailant holds the cashier by his chin before hitting him o the back of the neck to push him towards the other cash register.
A second view from another security camera shows the assailant and his accomplice grabbing the cash registers, which were placed on the counter that divides the cashier and customer. They then leave, cash and snacks in hand. Watch the full video below:
The video was uploaded this morning and the incident occurred this past weekend. At the time of Briefly.co.za's viewing, the video had gained over 11 000 views. Mzansi tweeps were not impressed:
"So brazen. Criminals feel like they can get away with anything and it seems like they do."
"Thank God he did not resist and thank God they didn't shoot anybody. The money will be recovered at no life expense."
There were no updates on the incident at the time of publishing. In similar news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Herman Mashaba's reaction to a police station being robbed. Mpumalanga police were left in an awkward position after it emerged that the Badplaas police station had been held up by three men on Saturday.
A manhunt has since been launched after the suspects managed to flee with firearms after gaining access to the station by cutting the fence at the back of the station. A Hawks spokesperson explained that the incident had taken place after midnight while only five officers had been on duty, just two of the on-duty men had been present.
Action SA founder Herman Mashaba has weighed in on the incident, commenting:
"Fellow South Africans, we are under attack. Police stations are being robbed. What on earth has happened to our country? We don't deserve this!"
