Gauteng police commissioner General Mzwandile Petros and his family were left in shock after a robbery at their home in Bryanston on Friday night, EWN reported on Saturday.
Eyewitness News reported that Petros’s wife was inside the house and raised the alarm when the robbers broke. They reported that the family did not come into direct contact with the perpetrators and nobody was hurt.
“…Anybody would be shocked at an incident like this, so the commissioner is shocked,” Petros's spokesperson Neville Malila was quoted as saying.
The gang got made off with a plasma TV.
It is not clear how the robbers gained entry into the property, but it is suspected they climbed over one of the walls.
Earlier, it was reported that there were apparently about 20 cars parked outside the commissioner’s house and officials were seen carrying out boxes of evidence.
