North Kent Police want to talk a man after a pedestrian was punched in the head and told to hand his money over.

Detectives have issued an e-fit of the man they wish to talk to in relation to the incident on Saturday January 25 at around 1.15am in Pelham Road, Gravesend.

A man in his 30s had just walked past two men sitting on a wall when he was punched from behind in the face.

A man stood in front of the victim and said: “Give me your money, where’s the money.”

The victim did not hand anything over and walked towards the town centre.

The two men are thought to have walked away, in the opposite direction.

Investigating officer Det Con Julia Pexton, from Kent Police, said: “Detectives are investigating an attempted robbery in which the victim suffered swelling on his face.

“We have released an image of a man we would like to speak to in connection with this incident and I would urge anyone who might recognise this person to contact us.”

Witnesses to the incident or anyone who recognises the e-fit image is asked to contact DC Julia Pexton at Kent Police on 01474 366093 and quoting reference XY/2825/14.
