Police spokesperson Andre Traut said the suspects, in their twenties, were due to appear at the Simon’s Town Magistrate’s Court on Friday for possession of suspected stolen property.
One man was arrested for being in possession of Ian Macpherson’s bicycle and the other for being in possession of his cellphone.
“We are yet to charge a suspect for murder, and the circumstances surrounding the matter are still under investigation,” said Traut.
In less than 24 hours after Macpherson was killed, cyclist Justin Bryan Kightley, 45, was robbed of his bicycle while riding to work in Rondebosch on Wednesday. He works in Sea Point.
