A new video making the rounds on social media shows a man and a woman attacking another woman for allegedly “stealing” from them.

In the widely spread video, the accused is seen with a bloodied top while being pulled and then screamed at inside a swimming pool.

“You steal. You f*cking steal. You are going to prison, sissy,” the man says in the video, to which the alleged thief replies, “Sorry, boet”.

 The incident allegedly took place in Franschhoek in the Western Cape.

While some people felt bad for the woman, others thought that she got what she deserved.

“I think she wanted to snatch the phone or bag. If that is the case, she deserves that. They have to m*er her.” 

“There is nothing racist here, the black lady stole and was attacked. Could he have handled the situation better? Yes, but if you’ve ever been robbed, you will know that you lose your mind. The only person you should deal with, is your fellow black sister.”

Many people also pointed out that the video doesn’t give much context as to what actually happened.

“Rather mad at the camera woman, this video is useless,” said one Twitter user.

“I've never seen such a useless camera man,” said another.

There is currently not a lot of information available about the incident.
