A Kent Police spokesperson said: “Officers investigating a report of attempted robbery in Maidstone have released a computer generated image of a man they would like to identify.

“The victim reported that between 1.30pm and 2.10pm on Friday, 5 April, four men approached her outside Romney Place and demanded she hand over her watch.

“When she refused, they chased her down the road before assaulting her.

“She suffered bruising to her face and the watch was not taken.

“Following enquiries which included reviewing CCTV and conducting house to house enquiries, the victim has now been able to complete an e-fit of a man officers would like to identify.”
