A video of an armed robbery at a Limpopo store has been uploaded to social media. @Abramjee (Yusuf Abramjee) uploaded the one-and-a-half-minute video to Twitter this morning and it has since racked up almost 20 000 views.
The video shows three armed assailants (one clad in blue and the other two in black) entering the store. Customers move away from the cashier as the assailant in blue approaches the counter with his gun while one assailant stands guard and the other assailant walks behind the counter.
The incident occurred in Thohoyandou and it is currently unclear if there were any injuries or how much money was taken from the premises. South African tweeps took to the replies section to share their concerns.
Take a look at the robbery below:
Briefly.co.za compiled a few of the replies left by Saffa tweeps:
"So if so many guys rob a super market how much do they get away with? Do these guys risk going to jail or dying for just a couple of thousands?"
"And they just walk away like nothing has happened. Too bad."
In similar news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a group of heavily armed thugs who made off with bags of cash after robbing a CIT van. A hair-raising video of a few thugs robbing a Cash in Transit (CIT) vehicle at gun-point was recently shared on Twitter by Nkulipp.
The incident took place at the Florida Witpoortjie petrol station yesterday morning. In the clip, thugs can be seen waiting for the security guards to fetch the money inside the gas station store and then approach the vehicle before they walk towards the guards, guns drawn, demanding the bags of money.
Meanwhile two other robbers, also wielding rifles, kept a lookout at the front end of the CIT vehicle. Once their counterparts secure the bags of cash, they jump into their respective vehicles and flee the scene.
