Kent Police detectives are appealing for witnesses following a report of an assault in Canterbury.

The incident is alleged to have taken place between 3am and 3.45am on April 1 between Eliot Footpath and St Michael’s Road.

“We would ask any witnesses, who we haven’t already spoken to, to come forward with information.”

Anyone who can help is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting crime reference ZY/12627/17.
