A Brighton teenager has been told to stay indoors between 7pm and 7am on Fridays and Saturdays for 12 weeks until just before Christmas.

Harry Thomas, 19, of Eldred Avenue, Westdene, must also wear an electronic tag for 12 weeks until Sunday 21 December.

Thomas was given the curfew and electronic tag after he pleaded guilty at Brighton Magistrates’ Court to two counts of assault by beating.

He attacked Douglas Fogarty and Victor Pancic in Brighton on Tuesday 8 April.

The court ordered him to pay each of his victims £50 compensation. He was also ordered to pay £620 prosecution costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

As part of a community order Thomas must also attend a Thinking Skills Programme for 19 days and be supervised for 18 months.
