Broadstairs Disturbance - Local Teenagers Arrested

Three teenage boys from Sittingbourne have been arrested following a disturbance in Broadstairs last week.

The incident happened at the seafront end of the town's High Street at 5.07pm on Friday (10th June). It is alleged four or five people assaulted a second group and then left the scene.

Officers attended and a bladed weapon was located and seized. No injuries were reported at the scene but subsequent enquiries suggest one person may have suffered a minor injury.

An investigation was commenced and three boys, two aged 16 and one aged 15, were later arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

Two of the three teenagers, who are all from the Sittingbourne area, were later bailed to return to a police station on Monday 4th July. A third remains in custody.

Detective Inspector Vanessa Law, of Margate CID, told SFM News: "We are continuing to appeal for witnesses and would also like to hear from anybody with mobile phone footage of the incident. Motorists with dashcam and businesses or residents with private CCTV are also asked to check for footage that may assist our enquiries."
