Witnesses are being sought by police investigating a disturbance reported on a road in Maidstone.



It is reported that a car window was deliberately damaged following a road traffic dispute in Fairmeadow at around 3.40pm on 1 May 2017.

It is alleged both cars stopped at the traffic lights, close to the junction with an entrance for the Fremlin Walk car park, after one of the cars was reportedly cut up.

At the lights a female passenger in one of the vehicles got out and started swearing at the driver of the other car.

The suspect is then said to have kicked the victim’s driver side window, causing it to break.

It is reported she then got back into the car, which was driven away in the direction of St Faith’s Street.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident and who has not yet contacted police.

Anyone with information should contact Kent Police on 01622 604100, quoting reference YY/011195/17.

Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

A 17-year-old girl was arrested on 9 May, on suspicion of assault and criminal damage. She has been released, pending further investigation.
