A video of a robbery happening in a broad daylight has caused worry among South Africans. One lady headed online to share a horrible video clip in which a group of women looking to treat their hair become victims of five heartless thugs.
@MissSteelo says people can't even go to salons in peace when such incidents even happen in daylight.
One of the thugs can also be seen taking out a gun and pointing it at a customer who is seen seated as she waits for her turn. The Twitter user captioned the video on her Twitter timeline:
“Now we can't go to salons in peace. This country though.”

“Here in Cape Town they even do that inside a moving bus during peak hours.”
“And it's not like police are not aware of this kind of operation.”
“5 guys sticking up a smallnyana kasi salon. How much loot could they have gotten away with? This is just so unnecessary, bathong.”
“They are so petty... look at the one leaving with stolen hair dryers and clippers.”
“This also happened at the salon where I take my girl and son to do their hair. Luckily for them, it was a day before their appointment.”
“Here in CPT, salon owners pay what is called a "protection fee" to criminals monthly, to avoid such. It's so bad, the level of crime in our country is too much.”
“A friend mine was robbed of a brand new phone, the wedding ring and a watch at the salon. It's gonna be worse now.”

In a similar story, Briefly News posted that Karin Morrow shared a video of a robbery that occurred in broad daylight.
In the viral clip, a house owner is seen entering the gate followed by thugs. A white car emerges in the shot and it’s parked not far from the main gate. Two armed men get out.
They are also seen coming out in a hurry carrying the home owner’s belongings and one is also seen pointing what looks like a gun at the owner before driving off. The social media account holder says car keys, a cellphone and a laptop were taken from the guy.
