Two men and a 17-year-old boy have appeared in court, charged after a woman was assaulted in Ramsgate.

Police say she was injured in the St John's Avenue area on Sunday evening. Her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Three men were arrested the following day and charged on Wednesday (9 November).

One of them, Anthony John Atherton, 43, of Charnock Road, Clapton in London is accused of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

The 17-year-old boy, of no fixed address, who we can not name, and Russell Jay Wilkinson, 35, of Harrington Hill in Clapton are charged with kidnap and attempt to cause grievous bodily harm with intent.

All three appeared have been remanded in custody after an appearance at Folkestone magistrates court, until a later date yet to be confirmed.
