The pair were arrested in Pinetown yesterday for possession of a dangerous weapon.
Spokesperson Thulani Zwane says they believe residents assisted in the escape.
"They also discouraged members of the community instead of assisting by alerting members of the police but they were laughing - that means they saw the crime being committed but they didn't report it to the police (sic)."
