Police are seeking a group of youths who racially abused a man before punching him in the head, then assaulted two other people armed with weapons in Gravesend.

The first incident happened on April 12 at around 9.30pm on Medhurst Crescent, where the victim alleged he was subject to racist abuse before being punched several times by a group of young people.

Shortly afterwards, a man and woman also reported being assaulted by a group of young people on Valley Drive.

The male reported that the group damaged his car, and upon confronting them he was assaulted with a glass bottle and wooden stick.

The female victim attempted to help calm the situation, but was assaulted by two girls from the group before the suspects fled the scene.

The suspects, three boys and two girls, are believed to be approximately 17 years old and white.

The two girls are described as having a slim build, being around five feet and four inches tall and were wearing black coats.

One girl had long blonde hair and the second had brunette hair which was tied in a ponytail.

They both had local accents.

One of the three boys is described as having a medium build with brown hair and was wearing jeans and a green jacket.

Another boy is described as being taller than the rest of the group and was wearing a brown top.

The third boy is described as being short, with a slim build and was wearing a baseball hat.

Anyone who may have information in connection with either incident is asked to call Kent Police on 01474 366149 quoting 46/60739/21.
