Cape Town - Two navy employees will return to the Simon's Town Magistrate's Court on Friday for a bail application.

Johannes Horn and Musa Kheswa were in the dock on Wednesday after their arrest earlier this week for assault with intent to inflict grievous bodily harm.

This followed six cyclists and a runner being whipped with a sjambok on Saturday between 06:45 and 07:30 between Main Road in Kalk Bay and Blackhill Road in Glencairn.

It is alleged that Horn and Kheswa were in the silver VW Polo identified by the victims.

The cyclists sustained deep cuts and wounds during the assault.

Police are investigating the motive for the attack.

The two remain in police custody.
