Anti-crime activist Yusuf Abramjee shared a clip online of security officers nabbing a robber. The video was reportedly recorded on the corner of Mooi and Market Streets in Johannesburg recently.

The video starts with a robber rushing over to the driver's side window of a silver VW Polo. On the right-hand side of the screen, another vehicle is seen pulling over - it's the security officers. The silver Polo then speeds off as a security officer exits the vehicle on the bottom right of the screen and runs towards the scene of the crime.

The officers walk across the busy intersection as they guide the robber towards their vehicle. Watch the clip below:

"SAPS know the hotspots in Johannesburg however they will never deploy any police. During this time cops used to patrol JHB on foot in camouflage."

@GlenKDasen wrote:

"Awesome work, we need more ground soldiers like this to make a dent."

@Tah_Ayas responded with:

"Well done to the officers. I wish I could say the same for @SAPoliceService."

“Yoh”: SA urged to keep vigilant as yet another clip captures hijacking

Previously, Briefly News reported that South Africans are still in shock after yet another brazen hijacking was caught on film. This time, the unsuspecting driver appears to have left his car just outside his front gate, probably to attend to some business in the yard all the while the gate remains open.

Watching the clip, it seems that unfortunately, the crooks took advantage of this small window of opportunity. At first, the suspects look like everyday people walking by the home.

The two armed men then reveal their weapons and intimidate the stunned driver before making off with his vehicle. @Abramjee first shared the video on his social media account, urging peeps to be more vigilant this holiday season.
