Two men and a woman have been attacked by a gang of up to 12 teenagers in Folkestone

One of the victims – a man in his 20s – suffered a broken and dislocated ankle in the incident, on the driveway of the Three Hills Sports Park in Cheriton Road between 11pm and 11.30pm on Friday 8 July.

The man was leaving the centre with his girlfriend and another man when they were approached by the group, who were all described as being aged 16-17.

Both men reported being punched, kicked and stamped on while the woman also reported being punched in the face as she tried to phone for help. Her smartphone was then reportedly stamped on and thrown over a fence.

One of the suspects is described as being black and bare-chested but wearing a black rucksack. His hair was shaved at the sides and long on top.

Another was described as being white, 5ft 6in, wearing a burgundy and grey hooded top and grey tracksuit bottoms.

The suspects are believed to have been in the area for some time before the incident and officers are hopeful someone may have seen them or knows who they are.

Anyone with information is urged to call the appeal line on 01843 222289 quoting reference ZY/23005/16.
