Police Appeal: Do You Recognise This Man?

Detectives investigating a robbery in Marden have now released a computer generated image of a man they believe can help with their enquiries.


Kent Police received a report that at 7.45pm on Friday 13 October 2017, a man in his 60s was at a business premises in Sheephurst Lane when two men wearing masks entered his office, punched him several times and hit him with a glass bottle. They then stole a quantity of cash and left the premises.

The victim suffered bruising and swelling to his face and hand.


One of the men is described as being 25 to 35 years old, 5ft 8in to 6ft tall and of slim build. He was wearing a black padded coat with a hood, black trousers, trainers and gloves.

The second is described as white, 25 to 35 years old, shorter than the other suspect and of slim build. He was wearing a black coat, trousers and gloves, and white trainers.

Investigators would now also like to speak to a man who was seen near the business premises on Friday 13 October who may be able to assist their investigation. He is described as being white, in his late 30s, of slim build with blond fair hair. He was wearing camouflage trousers and a waistcoat.
