Detectives are appealing for witnesses after two teenagers were stabbed in the early hours of New Year’s Day.
Both victims were taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital.
They are a 17-year-old local boy, who sustained a wound to the chest, and an 18-year-old local man, who sustained wounds to his right forearm and left hand.
Neither injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
They were attacked in Temple Street, Brighton, about 3.50am on Tuesday (1 January).
A maintenance employee, of Temple Street in Brighton, was arrested.
The 36 year old was remanded in custody to appear before Brighton Magistrates’ Court on 2 January, charged with committing grievous bodily harm and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
He has since been further remanded ahead of a further hearing at Lewes Crown Court on 30 January.
Police say there were a number of people in the area at the time and police are appealing for any witnesses to report it online or call 101.
