JOHANNESBURG - Eyewitness News understands security guards allegedly working for millionaire businessman Zunaid Moti opened cases of intimidation against forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan, which may have led to an attempted raid by mystery police officers.

The cases were opened at the Bramley Police Station on Sunday evening.

Gauteng police confirmed they were investigating two cases of intimidation and one of crimen injuria involving O'Sullivan.

In the early hours of Monday, police arrived at a townhouse complex where O'Sullivan is believed to live and demanded access.

Residents said the officers rang all the buzzers and demanded access. They said police were intent on arresting the investigator.

The officers claimed to be from Bramley Police Station, but police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini denied that.

"The police who went to the suspect were not coming from Bramley."

O'Sullivan said he knew nothing about the visit from the police.

Moti appeared in court in July, in connection with the attempted murder of Brits businessman Naeem Cassim and has blamed O'Sullivan for driving the case against him.

Last week, O'Sullivan was added as a witness in the trial against the controversial businessman and seven other suspects.

They face charges of robbery and attempted murder.
