The suspect immediately fled the scene.
Despite the incident, Katsande still featured for Sekhukhune in their 2-0 win at Maritzburg United as an early second-half substitute.
Katsande joined Sekhukhune during the current transfer window after spending a decade with Amakhosi.
The Mutoko born and bred midfielder who is popularly known as Salt and Vinegar recently announced that he is willing to come back from retirement and play for the Warriors one more time.
Zimbabwe is scheduled to play South Africa and Ethiopia in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and Katsande could be an option in the midfield considering that Marvelous Nakamba, a regular for that position, might fail to come due to travel restrictions.
