A dash-cam video is going viral in South Africa showing how a Brave Biker stopped a “smash and grab” in action in peak hour traffic!
Anton Damhuis is being hailed a hero after stopping the “smash and grab” during peak hour traffic.
The brave biker was on his way home when he saw the incident taking places and decided to intervene. It took some quick thinking but Damhuis managed to stop the looter AND he got the victim’s laptop back too.
The confrontation happened on Monday 10 September 2018, at the corner of London Road and 13th Avenue in Alexandra. Since the video’s release, it has gone viral across SA, with thousands of citizens thanking the brave biker for his actions.
- Carol-Anne Best commented: “Nicely done. It’s nice to know there are still people out there willing to help. Thank you.”
- Deanos Rides added: “Well done Anton! Nice move and well done for holding it up, looked like a close one!”
- Magda posted: “Well done, so brave, lots of respect!”
- SneakyRussian said: “Well done, man! I’m sure the victim was in shock so being grateful was not high on his list of priorities!”
Victim offers his thanks
Phillip Coetser was the victim in the other car and has since made contact with Damhuis to thank him.
“My friend, I was the man in the car and I want to really thank you for intervening. Sorry I did not thank you yesterday, but I was in a bit of a shock. I eventually ran into him with the car and unfortunately my laptop. The dent in the car is a minor price to pay for my safety and protection. May the God that created heaven and earth bless you abundantly in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ! Being in the middle of Alex, all I could think of was getting out of there! God willing my path will cross again with that of the biker, hopefully under different circumstances, and then I will make sure that he knows that I really appreciate him putting his life in danger to help me.”
