Below is video footage showing thieves using masks to stay anonymous while pick-pocketing customers in stores. This incident allegedly took place at Ackermans Centurion Mall. The victim in this video is Mack Rapapali's friend and she shared this footage because she wanted to help raise awareness with other shoppers. 

These types of crimes are likely to rise during the lockdown and unfortunately, it could be difficult to identify the masked perpetrators.

Video content supplied by the victim, Busi Mashiane.
