Officers investigating allegations of a racially aggravated assault in Canterbury are appealing for witnesses.

Kent Police was called just before 1am on Saturday 24 November 2018 to reports that two men had been punched and one of them was subjected to abuse.


A woman was also assaulted during the incident that took place in Palace Street.

PC Hannah Ashman said: ‘We understand these assaults followed a disturbance outside a pub in Orange Street, which continued down the road until the suspect reached Palace Street. He is reported to have been verbally abusive before carrying out the assaults near to the junction with Sun Street.



‘We are carrying out enquiries into these reports and reviewing CCTV. In the meantime we ask that any witnesses or anyone with information call us immediately on 01843 222289 quoting reference 24-0065.’

The suspect is described as a white man, between 5ft 7ins and 5ft 11ins tall, with dark hair and possibly in his late teens to mid-twenties. He was seen wearing dark jeans and a dark top.

Witnesses can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers in Kent anonymously on 0800 555111.
