Officers were called to the scene just after 11pm on Friday, December 20, following the incident in New Road.

An 18-year-old man from Dartford was arrested shortly afterwards on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, before being released under investigation.

Now police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to identify.

He was wearing a pair of tight-fitting navy blue and grey trousers that had AIR emblazoned on the side.
