    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "After a few minutes walking, Kevin threws the special stone, which he found near his home, against a wall. A hobo approached him".

    Thanks

    Take a look at the verb after "Kevin". Does it look correct to you?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
