Detectives are appealing for information following an attempted robbery and an assault in Herne Bay.

 

Kent Police was contacted at 8pm on Wednesday 7 October 2020 following a report of an attempted robbery of a man at a bus stop outside Herne Bay railway station.

 

It was reported that the man had been approached by a group of teenagers before a boy tried to grab his vaporiser and he was hit over the head with a bottle.

 

After officers attended the scene, they spoke to a boy who reported he had also been approached by a group of teenagers, aged around 15 or 16, near the tennis pavilion in Memorial Park and hit with a bottle.

 

Both of the victims were taken to a local hospital for treatment and the incidents are being treated as linked.

 

Two 15-year-old boys were later arrested on suspicion of assault and have been bailed until Wednesday 28 October.
