The incident happened at the start of July

The victim of an assault in Gravesend, which happened more than a month ago, is still requiring treatment, according to police.

Police are appealing for information after the victim, a man in his 30s, was punched to the floor at around 8pm on July 2.

He was reportedly asleep inside his vehicle in the Ascot Arms car park in Central Avenue, when a man in his early 20s knocked the passenger side door with his arm while walking with a group of friends.

The victim left his car, and a struggle ensued.

He was then punched to the floor, where his head hit the concrete.

More than a month on he still requires hospital treatment, after suffering a fractured skull and brain haemorrhage in the incident.

Police have released a CCTV image of a man who may be able to assist them.

A Kent Police spokesperson said: “Anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV image is urged to call the appeal line on 01474 366149 quoting reference XY/25564/16.

“Alternatively call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
