It is alleged that two suspects robbed a salon on Friday.

Police spokesperson Captain Xoli Mbele said two males entered the salon, closed the sliding door before one of them pulled out a firearm.

“They took an undisclosed amount of money and also robbed the customers, taking money and cellphones, before they fled the scene,” said Mbele.

Mbele said a suspect was spotted by the victim still wearing the same clothes the following day and called the police.

“His accomplice is still at large with a firearm and police are still continuing with investigations.”

The suspect was due to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court soon.
