A man who went to check on a woman who was surrounded by a group of men was then assaulted as he walked away.
The 30-year-old had left a nightclub in Bank Street with a friend at around 4am on Sunday, December 2, when he noticed a number of men talking to a lone woman.
After checking on her, he was then assaulted at the junction with Mill Street by the group of black men.
He suffered a broken jaw and was taken to Maidstone Hospital.
Detectives have been examining CCTV footage and are asking for anyone who saw what happened to come forward.
