The victim, who is in his 50s, sustained a head injury at some point between 9.50pm and 10.15pm on Thursday 9 December 2021. He was found injured in Thames Way, next to a roundabout which adjoins car park C at Ebbsfleet International train station, by two members of the public.
It was initially not known how he had sustained the injuries and he was taken to a local hospital by South East Coast Ambulance Service.
Subsequent checks at hospital revealed the victim’s injuries are consistent with being assaulted.
