Appeal after New Year’s Day attack in Gravesend

17:28 10 January 2013

A young couple were attacked by three men early on New Year’s Day in a car park in Gravesend.

The 21-year-old man and his 20-year-old girlfriend were in their black Ford Ka in the Lord Street car park when they were approached by the men.

The attackers punched and kicked the man and punched the woman, stamping on her hand as she tried to intervene.

The victims managed to drive off when two passers-by came forward to help.

Police would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the assault.

All three male attackers are described as white with Gravesend accents.

The first was blond with a slim build, wearing a black jumper and beige trousers. The second wore maroon shoes and the third wore a blue sweatshirt.

It is thought the same men attacked another couple further up Parrock Street.

PC Stephen Ikebuwa said: “This was a nasty and unprovoked assault on a young couple and resulted in serious injuries – but the injuries would have been much worse if it wasn’t for the timely intervention of these two men.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Kent Police on 101 quoting crime reference XY/0016/13.
