Main article content
New CCTV images have been released by detectives investigating a robbery in which a man was seriously injured in Tunbridge Wells.
The victim, who is in his 20s, was walking along Mount Pleasant Road when he was approached and verbally abused by three young men at around 11.35pm on Sunday 15 August 2021.
He was then followed into Calverley Grounds, where they are reported to have punched and kicked him before going through his pockets and removing a lighter and tobacco.
The victim managed to run away and alert the police but suffered serious facial injuries in the incident that required specialist treatment.
A teenage boy was arrested last year in connection with the incident and was released pending further investigation.
PC Lily MacKay, of Tonbridge CID, said: ‘We issued a previous appeal last September but have since recovered clearer images of a person who may be able to assist with our enquiries. ‘I would urge anyone who recognises him to contact our appeal line.’
