The second man was found nearby in Blackthorn Close, Crawley, with a minor stab wound to his arm.

Both were taken to hospital; however, their injuries are not believed to be serious.

Detective Inspector Jon Robeson said: “We believe this was a targeted incident and not a random act of violence.

“Thankfully both men only suffered minor injuries and have both been released from hospital.

“We believe the incident started in Langley Parade and if you were in the area around 10pm last night and witnessed the incident, we would like to hear from you.

“We are aware there was another incident, Operation Elmwood, earlier during the day and we are investigating both to establish if the two are connected.”

A 20-year-old man and a 22-year-old man, both from Crawley, were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent. Both remain in custody and the investigation is ongoing.
