Witnesses are being sought to an assault in Margate’s Old Town.

At around 11.30pm on Saturday 5 June 2021, two men were walking around the area when they were approached by a group of people who were verbally abusive towards them.

It was reported that they followed the victims to Market Place where one of the victims, a man in his thirties, was attacked with a glass bottle and assaulted. The second victim, a man in his forties, tried to intervene, but was punched. Both victims attended hospital following the incident.

One suspect is described as a white man of slim build, wearing a dark blue t-shirt. He, along with the other suspects – up to four other men – are all believed to be in their late twenties.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or has personal CCTV from the Market Place area which might assist enquiries.

Witnesses should call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/98091/21.
