Kent Police received a report on Monday 9 January 2023 that a teenage boy was approached by a group of males in Milton Road, Sittingbourne at about 3.30pm.

The group weren’t known to the victim.

They demanded he hand over his phone. The boy was also assaulted and received a cut to his face.

Following a description given by the victim, passed to local patrols and CCTV operators, a suspect was identified in the town centre a short while later and arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery.

The 15-year-old from Rochester has since been released on bail while enquiries continue.
