Women who helped Gravesend robbery victim sought

Two women who came to the aid of a man who had been attacked during a robbery in Kent are being sought by police.

The 40-year-old victim had just got off a train in Gravesend and was by his car in the Rathmore Road car park when he was sprayed in the face with a liquid.

During the attack, by two assailants, he fell and was kicked and punched while on the ground.

Police have only just revealed details of the incident, which happened on 8 November at about 2145 GMT.

Car keys

The attackers fled the scene with a black holdall and a grey Lonsdale rucksack.

An Acer laptop, a wallet containing £150, work clothes and a plain high-visibility jacket were among the items stolen.

Officers said the two people who offered to help the man were described as an Asian woman aged in her early 20s, and a white woman, aged between 26 and 30.

They appeared to be together and helped the victim to find his car keys.

Police are keen to speak to the women, along with anyone else who may have been in the car park that night or anyone who may have seen anything that could help with their inquiries.
