Police officers have charged a man with murder following the death of another man in Dartford.

An investigation by the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate was launched after Kent Police was called at 9.05pm on Friday 14 April 2023 to a report that a man had sustained injuries consistent with stab wounds in an alleyway off Suffolk Road.

Officers attended the scene along with South East Coast Ambulance Service and an 18-year-old man was pronounced deceased.

At around 12.30am on Saturday 15 April, two men were arrested in Gillingham on suspicion of murder and taken into custody.

On the evening of Monday 17 April the Crown Prosecution Service authorised a charge of murder against a man aged 19 from Greater London. He is due to appear before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 18 April.

Another 19-year-old man from Greater London, who was also arrested, has been bailed until Monday 10 July while enquiries continue.
