At about 1pm on Saturday 2 December 2017 a man and woman got out of a silver car in the car park of Thanet Tool Supplies in Monument Way in Sevington.


It was reported that the woman, aged in her 20s, was then assaulted.

A member of the public then tried to intervene, and the man and woman left the area.

The victim suffered cuts and bruising to her face.

Arrest made
