A man has been bailed after another man was stabbed in the leg at a busy cafe.
Police were called to the Sunshine Cafe, High Street, Hythe, following the incident around 1.15pm on Saturday.
The suspect, in his 30s, was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent.
Police continue to state that the victim suffered wounds to his leg "consistent with stab injuries", but business owner Halit Guner says this was not the case.
He told KentOnline that the injured man got into an argument with another man who he was sat with.
Mr Guner said a Coca-Cola glass was thrown by one of them and it smashed on the floor, with shards going in the calf of the other.
A female customer who is a paramedic stepped in to help until the emergency services arrived about 10 minutes later.
Mr Guner said: "To be honest with you it was a shock, we don't get things like that."
He said the victim remained conscious and was talking before the emergency services arrived.
"He wasn't losing a lot of blood but he was lucky," Mr Guner said, speaking about the paramedic's presence.
He said the person who threw the glass left before the police arrived.
