Brick thrown at victim by teens
Kent Police are appealing for information after a man reported he was assaulted in Dartford.
The victim, aged in his 20s, claims he was walking from Watling Street when a group of people began to verbally abuse him.
He tried to ignore them but they continued to taunt him and when he reached Pilgrims Way, one of the group punched him in the face.
A brick was also thrown at the victim, although it did not strike him, before members of the public intervened and the group ran away.
The suspects are described as all being aged between 14 to 18, all around 5ft 7in tall and all of slim build.
Investigating officer, Police Constable Alan Atherton-Jackson, said: “This was a frightening incident for the victim, who suffered a split lip.
“We are following a number of lines of enquiry but I would ask anybody with information to call me on 07964133557, quoting crime reference number XY/003907/15.
“Alternatively, if you would prefer to remain anonymous, call Kent Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
