Airlifted to London Hospital

Investigating officers have issued a new appeal for witnesses to a serious assault in Gravesend.

Kent Police previously appealed for information following an incident which happened at around 11.35pm on Tuesday 7 June 2022.

The victim, a man in his 40s, suffered a serious head injury in Leander Drive and had to be airlifted to a London hospital where he was in a critical condition.

While his condition is now stable, he still remains in hospital due to the type of injury sustained.

On Thursday 9 June officers arrested two men aged 20 and 37 from Gravesend and a 36-year-old man from Rochester, on suspicion of assault. They are on bail until Thursday 8 September, pending further enquiries.

Detective Inspector Pete Smith, of North Kent CID said: ‘Due to this violent incident the victim has been left with life-changing injuries which are not only physical, but will impact him in every area of his life.

‘This was an unprovoked assault and we are certain there are people out there who witnessed the incident and know what happened and who have not yet spoken to police.

‘I would urge you to please get in touch and provide us with this information, even the smallest piece of information can have a huge impact.

‘We are determined to solve this incident and ensure those offenders are held to account and that we get justice for the victim.’

Anyone with information should call Kent Police on 01474 366149, quoting reference 46/109513/22.
