Pretoria – A video of an armed security guard and customers in store running away after mistaking a man for a robber has gone viral on social media.
In the video, a large group of people are packed inside an unidentified store going on about their business while a security guard with an AK-47 rifle is standing next to what looks like an ATM.
A random man emerges out of the group, pushing through to the front of the line. He was wearing a hat, ripped black jeans and a red sweater.
As soon as the security guard notices the man, he takes off running, followed by customers – leaving the suspicious man alone at the centre.
The man, looking confused, also ran away after seeing people fleeing in different directions.
It is unclear where or when the incident took place.
