Witnesses sought to Crawley altercation
Sussex Police are appealing for witnesses after a man suffered a minor stab wound in a Crawley altercation.
Officers were called at 4.56pm on Tuesday (11 September) to High Street, Crawley, to reports of a fight.
An 18-year-old man walked out of Favourite Chicken when he was approached by a group of around 10 men of Asian appearance. The victim was then assaulted and suffered a minor stab wound above the hip and took himself to hospital.
Detective Sergeant Dave Morton said: “We are appealing to anyone who witnessed this assault to come forward to us with information.
“We are committed to targeting people supplying class A drugs in this area and we want to reassure everyone that their safety is our priority.
“Criminality that puts people’s lives at risk is never acceptable and it’s vital that the community pulls together to help us deal with those responsibilities.
“No one knows their neighbours better than residents themselves and we all need to work together to make Crawley a safe place.”
