Johannesburg - Police were searching for two people on Tuesday after an elderly man was found strangled in his flat in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, police said.

A neighbour found the 67-year-old man's body on Sunday afternoon, Sergeant Jenny Pillay said in a statement.

He was found tied up, with injuries consistent with strangulation.

Security guards contacted the man earlier, when two visitors wanted to come up to his flat. The man consented and was never seen alive again.

Police were following up on possible leads, including looking at CCTV footage.
