By Daniel Green

A man suffered face injuries after being repeatedly punched by a group of men.

The victim had been on a night out with four friends when they became involved in an argument with three other men near The Goose pub in King Street, Gravesend, which was closed at the time.

The friends went to get a taxi home, but were followed. A man from the group of three then knocked on the window of the taxi.

The group then attempted to drag one of the friends from the taxi, prompting the victim, a man in his 20s, to get out and tell them to go away.

He was then punched in the face a number of times before the men left the scene.

He was then taken to hospital to be treated for facial injuries.
