A man has been charged with aggravated burglary after a stabbing on Sheppey.
Gary Foy, 31, of Botany Close, Sheerness, was arrested just before midnight on Monday following the raid at a flat in Short Street.
Police were called at 9.50pm to a report that a man had demanded money before using a knife to inflict "two small stab wounds" to the shoulder of another man.
The man is also said to have punched a woman in her face, causing a "significant injury".
The suspect is alleged to have stolen the man's wallet and then left the flat, leaving both victims inside.
It is understood both victims knew the suspect.
Officers attended and while at the flat, heard the victim's bankcard had been used in a nearby shop.
They went to the shop and arrested a man in his 30s nearby.
Foy was charged on Tuesday with aggravated burglary, two charges of actual bodily harm and one charge of a racially-aggravated public order offence.
He appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and was remanded until Wednesday, February 7, when he will appear at Maidstone Crown Court.
