A man has been charged with attempted kidnap after a woman was reportedly threatened by a group of men carrying baseball bats and golf clubs in Margate.
The 24-year-old, from Ramsgate, was walking in Addington Street on Tuesday afternoon when she is said to have been targeted.
She told police the men ran out of in an American-style camper van that had stopped ahead of her – opposite the bowling alley – at just after 2pm.
It is then said to reversed towards her before men got out with baseball bats and golf clubs and ran at her, shouting. She managed to escape and was unhurt.
Now Daniel Holloway Junior, of Nixon Avenue, Ramsgate, has been charged with attempted kidnap and affray.
The 23-year-old has been remanded in custody and is due before court today.
A 29-year-old was also arrested last night and remains in police custody.
Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to phone DS Nik Borda at Kent Police on 01227 868278, giving reference ZY/12899/14, or call Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
