Two men get suspended jail terms after Crawley fight


Two men have been given suspended jail sentences after admitting taking part in a major disorder in West Sussex.

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

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

Khan and Arafat were each jailed for 16 weeks, suspended for 12 months.

They were also each ordered to carry out 300 hours of community service in the next year, given a 12-month supervision order and ordered to pay £100 compensation.

Another man, 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 next due to appear at Lewes Crown Court on Friday.
