A teenager has been arrested after a man was repeatedly punched in the face on a street in Tunbridge Wells.
The victim was walking along Mount Pleasant Road on December 30 when he was attacked amid demands to hand over his wallet.
The suspect, who has been linked by officers to a separate allegation of theft in St John’s Road, Tunbridge Wells, on January 26, eventually left the scene empty-handed.
On Monday, a 19-year-old man from Bromley was arrested at his home address and remains in custody.
The arrest is part of an ongoing crackdown by police on violent crime across Kent, including on knife crime and associated offences, such as supplying drugs.
