The video shows a woman jogger entering from the left of the screen, followed by several others. The people in the restaurant soon started getting panicked and started running away too.
The video has gone viral on Reddit, and it has since been revealed that the customers and staff of the restaurant believed that the runners were thieves attempting to rob them.
This type of crime is reportedly very common in Brazil, where a group of thieves rush strangers and take off with their belongings.
