Can you help officers?

Kent Police is appealing for witnesses as it steps up its investigation into a reported assault in Margate.

Officers received a report that a man in his 30s was sitting in the front seat of a blue Vauxhall Zafira car when he was assaulted by another man in Dane Park between 3.30pm and 3.45pm on Monday.

The second man is described as white, of stocky build with short dark hair, wearing a black t-shirt and black shorts, and carrying a black rucksack.

The victim suffered facial injuries that are described as serious and he attended a local hospital for medical attention.

A 28-year-old Margate man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of assault and has been released for further investigation.

It is believed a number of people were in the Dane Park area at the time and police are asking anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that can help to contact Kent Police by calling 01843 222289 quoting reference ZY/014159/17.

Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
