Appeal follows Christmas Day attack in Gravesend

By Chris Hunter

Police are appealing for witnesses after two men were assaulted in the early hours of Christmas Day in Gravesend.

The victims, aged in their twenties, were walking home from a night out with three other friends when they were approached by two men in the middle of Grange Road, at the junction of Pelham Road.

These men started questioning the victims about a woman before a third man ran up the road and punched one of the victims.

The victims tried to defend themselves as the men continued to attack, before a friend called the emergency services and the men fled the scene.

The third suspect’s description is unknown.
