Herne Bay: Police release photo of Darren Selby connected with samurai sword attack

By KentOnline reporter

Police hunting an attacker who nearly sliced off a man's hand with a samurai sword have released a photo of a man they believe may be connected to the assault.

Officers have added Darren Selby to their most wanted list following reports a 27-year-old man was struck with a long blade in Herne Bay.

The incident happened late on Thursday night at a property in Charles Street.

One bystander described at the time how the drama unfolded at the junction with Bank Street at about 10pm.

“There was this young lad shouting and screaming and carrying on, bashing on the door,” she said.

“A woman came out of another side door and started shouting back at him.

“Then another guy came out of the front door with what I thought was a stick, but as he turned I could see it had a gold handle and it glinted in the light.

“The woman was screaming ‘no, no, no, leave him alone’, but the next thing he’s brought it down on the younger man.

The pavement and a car outside the property were still covered in blood the following morning.

If you know where Selby is, call 101, quoting most wanted and crime reference ZY/22633/17.
