Two suspects had to be tasered and a car crashed in yesterday's mayhem surrounding a town centre stabbing.
Kent Police have revealed further details of the violence in Dartford, confirming that officers were also assaulted with a suspect still at large.
They were first called to a disturbance in Lowfield Street at around 6pm.
A white Nissan Qashqai had collided with some roadside furniture and then two men fled the car.
A fight ensued, during which one of the men suffered an injury consistent with a stab wound, detectives said.
Officers arrested the victim of the assault, who is in his 20s and from Erith, on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
He was taken to a London hospital for treatment where he remains in a stable condition.
Two other men from London, one in his 30s and the other in his 20s, were also arrested and under investigation for possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
A Kent Police spokesman said: "A number of police officers were assaulted whilst in attendance, and two of those arrested were tasered as a result of their aggressive behaviour.
"A fourth man suspected of carrying out the assault remains outstanding and enquiries to identify and locate him are ongoing."
The man in hospital is not believed to have life threatening injuries.
