Every day a number of South Africans fall victim to serious crimes, whether it be hijacking or scams. Crime in South Africa has reached a point where one does not know when and where it will happen.
A video that was shared on Twitter shows how a group of criminals bypassed spikes at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Pretoria. According to News 24, robbers fled the scene after injuring a civilian and a security guard during a jewellery store robbery on Sunday, October 24.
Civilians are under attack, this country has reached a stage wherein no one knows what’s next. Worse everyone is coming to SA legal or illegal which makes it difficult for useless police to track down culprits. This Menlyn video is saying it all. pic.twitter.com/bucNdlBmbM

There is no way your heart won’t stop pumping after watching this.
Eye witnesses speak of seeing blood on the floor.
It’s not an easy story, sensitive like crazy. But, let’s follow each other and make sense of this madness.

The centre later confirmed the incident, indicating that the injured civilian and security guard had been taken to a medical facility for treatment. The incident also comes a week before South Africans will make their mark in the local elections on Monday, November 1.
