“Police managed to arrest the suspects for conspiring to assist and incite escape from lawful custody, assault on police, possession of dangerous weapons and obstructing police in the execution of their duties.
“One member sustained minor injuries. Six knives were confiscated from the suspects,” police said.
The 10 suspects aged between 17 and 41 are expected to appear before the Galeshewe magistrate's court soon while police investigations continue, they said.
