Man arrested after stabbing in Horsham

A man was stabbed after three men forced their way into his Horsham home.

The incident happened in Bishopric Court shortly after 9pm yesterday.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “Officers are still investigating the circumstances of what happened, but it appears that three offenders went to the address and forced their way in before attacking one of the occupants with a knife. They also stole property from the flat.”

The man was taken to hospital with stab wounds and was in a stable condition this afternoon.

Simon Brodey, 27, who also lives in Bishopric Court, told The Resident: “There are always problems here. It’s like EastEnders – never a dull moment. I’ve got two children and it makes me worried about them. A lot of families live here and we need to get more CCTV.”

A 20-year-old man from Worthing has been arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm. Police inquiries continue.

  1. this is a normal thing in the bishopric court i have lived hear 2 years there is a big drug problem in the bloke of flats when i first moved hear my kids founds neeedles for crak and herrion adicts that where just laying it point range for them to pick up the police and cancel have done nothing about it even park asprin who are the manerging agents of the bloke wont sort the cctv out it only has 2 camras in the whole bloke what is it going to take for someone to die before any real thing gets sorted

    • also cant spell block and he didn’t die. get your facts straight before you run your mouth about things you don’t even know about, (probably council because i would not employ someone who could not spell block.

      • Charlie, you obviously do no have the knowledge to take the moral high ground over any spelling or grammar!

        also cant spell block and he didn’t die. get your facts straight before you run your mouth about things you don’t even know about, (probably council because i would not employ someone who could not spell block. (Sentances start with capital letters, i on its own is actually I) 5/10 must try harder

  2. i have lived in the bishopric court for 2 years there has bin a big problem with drugs in the block even before i moved hear with in a week of living hear my children found needles in point view of the public i informed the police and council they where willing to do nothing many of times i come home i find dunks peeing in the stair well injecting them selfs its not right peolpe that live hear in the bishopric should have to be subject to this there are lots of familys with young children why should we have to live our lifes in fear the cctv in the bishopric only has 2 camras 1 at the front and the other round he side what is it going to take for what someone to be killed before any real safety is put in place so how it seems that peolpe will have to live in fear even in there own homes how sick can the govemnet be and local cancil

  3. I’m sure you all have your faults. How about instead of being immature and nasty, attacking somebody for their spelling or grammar, people take a look at the real problem. Whether people are council or not, able to spell or not, there are still innocent people/children here that are being affected by this disgusting behaviour. Just because some of these people are council does not mean they care any less than those of you who consider yourselves to be some sort of superior. They love their children the same and deserve to live in the same environment and conditions as everybody else does. The issues that need addressing here are the fact that people are taking drugs and bringing violence to the area, not the fact that somebody may or may not be able to spell perfectly.

  4. Steve Kray – you are clearly one of the uneducated teachers that taught our friend Simon the original poster. I pity you.

    I’m with Charlie on this one well done Charlie.
