Police are appealing for witnesses after two men reported being assaulted in the early hours of Christmas Day in Gravesend.

The men in their twenties, were walking home from a night out with three other friends when they were approached by two men in the middle of Grange Road, where it meets Pelham Road.

These men started questioning the victims about a woman before a third man ran up the road and punched one of the victims.

The victims tried to defend themselves as the men continued to assault them. The victims’ friends were able to call emergency services before the attackers ran away from the scene.

The incident happened on Monday, December 25 between 1.15 and 1.25am.

One attacker is described as 5ft 7ins tall with short brown hair and wearing a pink jumper.

The second is around 5ft 8ins tall with short brown hair and was wearing a black bomber jacket with jeans. Both are said to be of Indian appearance.

The third suspect’s description is unknown.
