A man allegedly attacked train staff before running off into a town centre “naked” and punching a police officer.
British Transport Police (BTP) were called to Folkestone Central railway station after it was reported members of the Southeastern team were assaulted.
Officers attended earlier today but were directed into the town centre by the public who told them the man was “now naked” and had run away.
They found him in the middle of the road with his trousers down, exposing himself, according to BTP.
As they went to arrest him, the suspect is alleged to have punched one officer in the face.
Kent Police’s Folkestone and Hythe officers also attended and helped to restrain the man and remove him from the road – during this, he is said to have kicked an officer.
The suspect was arrested for common assault, two counts of assault on an emergency worker, outraging public decency and trespass upon the railway.
He was taken to the hospital as it was suspected he was under the influence of drugs and he was later given a clean bill of health.
