Information is sought by officers investigating an assault in Maidstone which left a man suffering a broken jaw.

The assault happened at around 6.25pm on Thursday 13 August 2023, after it is alleged the victim was approached by several people in Gabriel’s Hill, at the junction with the High Street. It is reported he was then punched to the floor by two suspects and repeatedly kicked in the face.

Officers attended, and an 18-year-old man was arrested nearby. On 17 August, the investigation led to the further arrest of a 17-year-old boy. Both are currently bailed pending further enquiries.
