Kent Police were called at 1.03pm on Thursday June 14 to reports that a man and a woman were on the roof of building in St Mary’s Road.

The woman came down but the man refused to and a road had to be closed while police remained at the scene.

He was detained by police officers at around 6.30pm and brought down safely.

Troy Clark, 21 and of no fixed address, was subsequently charged with causing criminal damage to property.

He was further charged with an assault, alleged to have happened earlier the same day.

He is due to appear before Maidstone Magistrates’ Court on July 20.
