JOHANNESBURG - Investigations are underway to determine whether acting National Police Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane may have been the target of a robbery in Dunkeld.
Phahlane was with his wife at a beauty spa when two armed men stormed the building yesterday.
It's understood a scuffle ensued between the suspects and the acting police commissioner during which he sustained minor injuries.
The Hawks' Hangwani Mulaudzi says the men fled after firing at least one shot.
"They got into a silver-grey Golf, which is now the subject of an investigation. Currently, there's a team that is busy investigating the case and we're also trying to get any evidence that might lead us to the arrest of the suspects."
Mulaudzi says no items were taken from the premises.
"There was a scuffle between the acting police commissioner and the two suspects. They then ran away and as they ran, a suspect fired a shot."
