A second woman received medical attention for a head injury and a teenage boy for a cut to his hand. All three victims were taken to hospital and have since been discharged.

On the same day, a man who was known to the victims was arrested and taken into custody.

He was also charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 11 March where he was remanded to a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on 7 April.
