A man transported to hospital by air ambulance from Townwall Street in Dover yesterday afternoon, is believed to have been stabbed.
The man, described to be Eastern European in his mid-twenties and six-foot tall, suffered a wound to his right arm.
Dover resident Nigel Scutt witnessed the aftermath of the incident.
He said: “About quarter to two yesterday afternoon, I clocked the air ambulance hovering above the clock tower.
“About ten minutes later it landed in the De Bradelei Wharf car park in Townwall Street and was met by two land ambulances.
He added: “Apparently there was some sort of incident, this chap had been stabbed in his right arm. He had blood on his forehead and marks on his other arm.
“He didn’t seem to be too badly injured and I’m not being unsympathetic but he walked from the back of the ambulance to the air ambulance. It was fairly odd to use the air ambulance when he was walking.
“There was a lady that may or may not have been being treated for shock. She was taken in the other ambulance.”
Police were also at the scene.
Officers had also been called to Harold Street, Dover at 2.55pm yesterday to reports of a crash involving one vehicle.
A man was taken to hospital with injuries sustained prior to the car crash on Saturday afternoon.
A police spokesman said: “A man was found with wounds believed to have been sustained in “an altercation” with another person prior to the crash.
“The injured man was taken to hospital where his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.”
Police could not confirm whether the incidents were related. Officers continue to carry out inquiries.
