Durban – Two men arrested for the alleged possession of a knife, gloves and a large rock appeared in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Thursday, said the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) on Friday.

The suspects, aged 22 and 24 respectively, were kept in custody pending their bail application, according to NPA spokesperson Natasha Ramkisson.

The police arrested the pair on Wednesday after conducting an operation specifically aimed at preventing criminal activities in the area, especially on highways.

"Suspects were spotted leaning over the Queen Nandi Drive – Inanda Road bridge, carrying a rock," police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said.

The suspects were immediately arrested and then detained at Greenwood Park police station.

The arrests follow several incidents of rock-throwing in the area.
