Officers investigating a report of an assault in Margate are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

It was reported that at around 1.50pm on Tuesday 11 September 2018, the victim, a man in his 30s, had got out of a car and was standing on the pavement in Northdown Road near the junction with Devonshire Gardens when he became involved in an altercation with another man.

Shortly after, the victim was assaulted and was taken to a London hospital with injuries consistent with a stabbing.

Both victim and offender are believed to be known to each other.

Detective Sergeant Brian Doughty of Kent Police said: ‘We would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time to come forward, as you may have information which could assist our enquiries.

‘There are a number of shops and businesses there and it’s quite a busy area of Cliftonville so we believe there are people who were there at the time of the incident, who did not speak to officers at the scene.’

Any witnesses are asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting ZY/53984/18.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers in Kent anonymously on 0800 555 111.
