A man's told police how he was robbed, assaulted and threatened with a knife in Ashford.

It happened on a bridge on Tannery Lane last night.

The victim in his 40s was walking along a bridge in Tannery Lane between 9pm and 10pm last night (6 March) when a group of people approached him and assaulted him, leaving him with cuts and bruises.

They're also said to have threatened him with a knife before stealing his belongings including his phone and wallet. 

Kent Police say they searched the area and later arrested three teenagers including one 17-year-old girl and two 18-year-old men all from Ashford after seizing a knife from them. 

Police believe there were people walking along the bridge at around that time who could have seen something suspicious - they're being asked to contact Kent Police.
