Durban - Three people were arrested following an attack on police officers at an alleged known drug den in Shallcross at the weekend.
Two police officers were rushed to hospital after the incident.
Police were conducting a raid on a property in Taurus Road when they came under attack.
The Minority Front’s Shallcross PR councillor, Jonathan Annipen, said people protesting against the alleged drug den were gathered around the property after the raid when an angry mob emerged.
“An angry mob of people who were either in support of the drug dealers or runners for the dealers started to attack police and damage their vehicles,” he said.
Police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbhele said that police were following up intelligence regarding drug trade in the area when they were attacked.
