A shop worker has been taken to hospital after being involved in a fight with at least three men, some of whom were said to be armed with a hammer and a knife.
It reportedly happened at the Tesco Express store on Sturdee Avenue, Gillingham, shortly before 3.30pm.
One woman at the store said she was asked to complete a statement for the police.
She said: "There were two older guys and two younger guys.
"One of the group had a knife and one of them had a hammer and they attacked a member of staff."
It is reported that a member of staff was dragged to the floor during the attack.
Meanwhile, another caller told KentOnline he believed a person had been taken away in an ambulance.
