Detectives have launched an investigation after a pensioner was punched by a white van man who then stole his camera.
A 79-year-old man was reportedly punched in the face on Thursday and had his camera stolen following a dispute over a road traffic collision.
The incident happened on Station Road, A225, Otford at around 2pm.
The victim had been driving and stopped his vehicle when he recognised a white Ford Transit van which he believed had been involved in a previous collision with his own car on April 8 and which had allegedly failed to stop.
As he was taking a photograph of the Transit a man approached and challenged him. It is alleged he struck the victim in the face knocking him to the ground, before stealing the camera from him and getting into the van.
The man then drove the vehicle away and in doing so it is said the victim's shoulder was struck with a wing mirror.
Officers are continuing to make a number of enquiries into this incident and anyone with information is urged to call Kent Police on 01622 604100, quoting reference YY/009983/17. Alternatively call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
