South Africans fall victim to serious crimes almost every day, whether it be hijackings or scams, as criminality in the country has reached a point where one does not know when and where it will happen.
The latest video shared across social media shows three men ransacking a Ram courier vehicle in front of a house in Surrey Estate, Cape Town on Thursday, October 28. The CCTV footage, which was captured from the house across the street, shows the suspects’ vehicle approaching the courier vehicle, who was reportedly dropping off a package at this specific residence.
In the video, the trio is seen getting out of the vehicle and approaching the Ram workers, where they instructed them to stand on one side while they started loading packages into their vehicle. However, it’s unclear whether the suspects were armed.
Another vehicle is also seen approaching the scene, but the driver immediately reversed away after noticing the robbery.

Just last week, a video was shared on Twitter of how a group of criminals bypassed spikes at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Pretoria. According to reports, the 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
