Man identified following enforcement officer ‘assault’ appeal

Kent Police

Officers investigating an assault on an enforcement officer in Margate have now identified a man they want to talk to in connection with the incident.

Police released an image of a man this week but say they are no longer appealing for information to find him.

At about 5.10pm on Tuesday 1 May, the victim spoke to a woman on Hawley Street when it is reported an unknown man approached the enforcement officer and started shouting at him, making threats.  As the officer moved away the man is said to have kicked him in the hand.
