A MAN in his 60s was stabbed twice over some loose change in a robbery in the town last week.

The police were called to the incident at 10.50pm on Monday July 2, after the victim was accosted while he was walking along a pathway that runs between the Sovereign Way and Avenue Du Puy.

Another man approached him and demanded money. It is alleged the suspect then assaulted him, picked up some coins that had fallen from his pocket and left the scene.

The victim later found he had sustained two puncture wounds to his stomach that were consistent with stab wounds.

He was taken to a London hospital by South East Coast Ambulance Service where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

The assailant is described as being black, 20 to 30 years old, of slim build and with short curly black hair.

It is understood that he spoke with a foreign accent and was wearing a loose fitting black T-shirt and grey trousers.

Anybody who saw the incident or has any information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Kent Police on 01622 604100 quoting reference YY/23362/18.
