His actions were caught on video and has since been posted online. Strandfontein Neighbourhood Watch shared the clip on his Facebook page.
He captioned the post:
"Strandfontein residents, please be very alert. Spiderman alert. Please secure your property from opportunistic criminals."
Social media users were stunned by the man's attempts to get away and they could not help but giggle at the footage.

In other news, Briefly.co.za previously reported on another video that went viral. A video has caused outrage and concern on social media this week. The clip, which was shared by social media user Sizwe Mabaso (@KingMntungwa), shows a man getting mugged in Johannesburg in broad daylight.
The group of thugs managed to pin the victim to the ground as they ransacked him for his belongings. The brazen attack took place at Johannesburg Small Street, according to Mabaso. He captioned the post:
"Welcome to JHB Small Street."
The clip went viral, gathering over 49 000 views in less than a day, and South Africans were left concerned. Many pointed out that the thugs mugged the man during the day while there were crowds of people who could witness it.
This had social media users angry because not a single person attempted to help the victim. Many just watched or walked away, turning a blind eye to their fellow South African's suffering.
