Police are investigating after a man was stabbed as he walked home after a night out in Rochester.

It happened in The Vines behind Rochester High Street at around 11.30 pm on Saturday night.

Two friends, aged 21 and 19, were walking home when they were confronted by a group of about people, aged between 15 and 18 years old.

Both men were attacked with the 21 year old being stabbed. Mobile phones and a coat were stolen.

The man, who was stabbed, was taken to hospital.

His condition is not serious.

We are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen or has dash cam footage of the incident. We would also like to hear from anyone who recognises the description of the offenders or who has information about the robbery.

Detective Inspector Beverley Morrison
