LONDON (AP) - Two men are due in court to face charges of plotting to rob and assault British soul singer Joss Stone.

Junior Bradshaw, 30, and 33-year-old Kevin Liverpool were arrested Monday morning near Stone’s house in the town of Cullompton, 175 miles (280 kilometers) southwest of London, after residents reported a suspicious-looking vehicle.

News reports said the men had swords, rope, a body bag and plans of the singer’s secluded house.

They are due in court Thursday on charges of conspiracy to rob and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

The 24-year-old singer said in a statement that she was “absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal.”

The Grammy-winning singer is due to start a European tour next month.
