It's the moments where you least expect it when criminals strike!

As much as we would like to say that we live in a fairly safe country, no one can fully attest to that regardless of where they live. 

Crime is all around us - lurking in places that are considered safe.  

Sadly, this is the reality that we have become accustomed to. A reality that leaves us feeling uneasy most of the time. 

CCTV footage shared on TikTok from a mall in South Africa shows how easy it is for a criminal to blend in. 

Innocently, we get complacent and lose focus on our surroundings. And that's when the criminals strike. 

Sometimes you are able to act quickly but other times it happens so fast that you are left in shock. We think that was what happened with this woman.
