It all happened at around 8.45pm on Monday.

Later the same evening, it is reported the same suspect threatened a second man while holding a machete at Sittingbourne train station.

The threats continued as the victim left the station and ran into Mill Way. It is understood neither victim suffered any injury and within a few hours of the second drama, a man was arrested in Kemsley.

Joe Tubb, of Gillingham Road, Gillingham, was later charged with two counts of affray and two counts of possessing a bladed article.

The 21-year-old appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court where he was remanded in custody to a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on a date to be confirmed.
