A robbery took place at around 3.15pm on Tuesday 24 January 2023 in Cotton Road in the Wincheap industrial estate.

The victim, a man in his forties, was sitting in a parked van when the vehicle’s door was forced open and threats of violence were made by a man. The suspect took the van keys, as well as two other additional vehicle keys.

The suspect walked away and joined another man and a woman who all left in the direction of Cow Lane.

The suspect was described as a white man, aged between 35 and 40 years old, around 6 feet 2 inches tall and he had a scruffy short ginger beard. He was wearing a brown flat cap, a dark coat, dark trousers and dirty white trainers.

The two people he left the scene with were described as a similarly-aged white man, believed to be 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a short black beard, who wore a dark blue flat cap, and a white woman who wore a dark grey hooded jacket.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information or dash cam footage which might assist enquiries, should call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/14611/23.
