Detectives are appealing for information following a serious 'knife' assault in Goudhurst.

It is reported that a group of men assaulted a man in his 40s in Lurkins Rise at around 7.50pm on Monday 5 August 2019.

The victim sustained injuries consistent with knife wounds and he was airlifted to a London hospital.

As part of their enquires, which were assisted by the national police helicopter, Kent Police officers attended Crowhurst Lane in West Kingsdown and arrested an 18-year-old man, from West Kingsdown, on suspicion of attempted murder.

He remains in custody as enquiries continue.

Detective Chief Inspector Mat Scott, from Kent Police’s Crime Investigation Department, said: ‘We understand the individuals involved in this incident are known to each other and we are following numerous lines of enquiry.

‘Although we have made an arrest, and spoken with a number of people at the scene, we are keen to hear from anyone who has information that is yet to speak with us.

‘We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw a grey Kia SUV type vehicle and a black Ford Focus estate travelling in the Goudhurst and Cranbrook areas between 7pm and 9pm.’

Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 01622 604100 quoting 46/151030/19.

Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, by calling 0800 555 111 or using the anonymous online form at [1]
