Both remain in custody.

The victim was taken to a hospital with life-threatening head injuries and his next of kin have been informed of his condition, police said.

Detective Sergeant Antony Preston of Surrey Police is leading the investigation and called for any eyewitnesses to come forward.

He said: "The restaurant and surrounding streets would have been extremely busy, and it is imperative that we speak to everybody who was in KFC at the time, or who saw or heard the commotion outside.

"I am also keen to speak to anyone who was driving past the scene, and any delivery drivers collecting orders from KFC, as it is likely that their dashcam or helmet cam may have captured what happened."

Anyone with information which could help police is asked to phone 101 and quote reference PR/45200091641, or alternatively do so anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
