    Policie také zatkla dvojici mužů.

    Why is dvojiciused in this sentence? Policie také zatkla dvojici mužů.
    Would Policie také zatkla dva muže be incorrect? In which other cases is dvojici used?
    Thanks

    Dva is a basic numeral. Dvojice is a noun denoting a group of two (twosome, couple, pair, duo...). Analogically dvojice, trojice, čtveřice, pětice, šestice... denote threesome, foursome, fivesome, sixsome... respectivelly.

    Yes, werr is right. If you say "dvojice mužů" it means that they cooperated, on the contrary "dva muži" is very general and we don't know if they cooperated or not.
