Police investigating a stabbing at a Gravesend McDonald’s have kept an 18-year-old man in custody after a court hearing last week.

Aiden St Louis of Lewis Crescent, Margate, has been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of an offensive weapon.

Following his arrest on Tuesday, August 1, St Louis appeared at Medway Magistrates’ Court on Friday and was remanded in custody ahead of a second hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on September 1.

Paramedics were called to the McDonald’s on New Road, where they rushed a man in his early 20s to a London hospital at around 3.45am on Sunday, July 16.

His injuries were described as serious, but not life-threatening and he has since been discharged from hospital.

Kent Police is continuing to appeal for witnesses following the incident and have issued the following appeal: “Enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the incident are ongoing and anyone with information about this incident who has not yet spoken to police can call Kent Police appeals line on 01474 366149 quoting XY/34681/17.

Following the incident, a McDonald’s spokesperson said: “We can confirm an incident occurred at our Gravesend restaurant in the early hours of Sunday, July 16. This incident is subject to an ongoing police investigation and we’re unable to comment further.”
