A man in his 20s was walking along Rosedale Road, by the junction of Wharfdale Road, when he was punched to the ground. It was reported a group of about five people were seen to hold him down while his pockets were searched. The group left empty-handed when they were disturbed by a light from a nearby property.

 

The attempted robbery took place at around 2.45am on Tuesday 11 August 2020.

 

Officers attended the scene and a 23-year-old man from Broadstairs  and a 25-year-old man from Ramsgate were arrested in connection with it.

 

They have been released on bail until 2 September pending further enquiries.
