Two more people have appeared in court following major disorder in West Sussex.

Omair Khan and Omar Arafat, both 20 and from Crawley, pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm at Crawley Magistrates' Court.

The pair were bailed to appear for sentencing on 1 December.

The prosecution follows a fight near Argos in Queensway, in Crawley town centre, which left two men with serious head injuries on 15 September.

Arafat also pleaded guilty to common assault.

An east London man previously appeared in court charged with attempted murder.

Antonio Batsimba, 22, of Dagenham, has been charged with two counts of attempted murder and inflicting grievous bodily harm.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear before Lewes Crown Court next month.

Nine arrests

Two other men in their 20s from Crawley have been arrested on suspicion on attempted murder and affray and have been rebailed until December.

A further two men in their 20s, also from Crawley, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder but will have no further action taken against them.

Officers said the two men who suffered head injuries had both recovered.

Nine people were arrested in total after the incident. Two men, aged 43 and 36, were released in September with no further action to be taken against them.
