It was reported that at around 3.20pm on Tuesday 15 February 2022, a man in his 20s was walking down a path between Clifford Road and the Crab and Winkle Way in Whitstable when he was approached by two teenage boys riding a bicycle.

The man’s arm was grabbed and held while his pockets were searched.

The man’s bank card and other cards were stolen, and the bank card was used fraudulently at a shop in Old Bridge Road shortly after.
