A Joburger took to social media to express shock at witnessing two men 'walking like normal civilians' rob a driver in traffic.

A Joburg resident took to social media to express her shock at witnessing two men 'walking like normal civilians' rob a driver in the middle of traffic on Malibongwe Drive, Johannesburg.

Twitter user Reneilwe who posted the video can be heard saying, 'there's a robbery right in front of us.' She later took to social media and explained what followed:

We were only able to help him once those guys left, we offered to call anyone for him or drop him off so he could get his spare keys... he got beat up badly though. The car assistance people came and helped him too, I hope he’s okay now.

Reneilwe Sekgobela - on Twitter

Social media users were horrified at the brazen robbery and posted strongly worded opinions.

'The reason why crime is on the rise is because criminals know that we don’t help each other, they can rob us anywhere and no one will assist because we all mind our business. As for taking videos, we are the best' wrote one.

It raised much debate about whether citizens should help in that situation or now, a reaction termed 'the bystander effect.'

Many took to Twitter expressing what they believe people should do in that situation.
