Police confirmed this evening that a man in his 30s has been arrested and remains in custody as the investigation continues.

They said earlier that they were investigating reports of a stabbing, but business owner Halit Guner said they were not.

He told KentOnline the injured man had an argument with another man he was sitting with.

Mr Guner said a glass of Coca-Cola was thrown by one of them and crashed to the ground, shards penetrating the calf of the other.

A client who is a paramedic stepped in to help until emergency services arrived about 10 minutes later.

Mr Guner said: “To be honest with you, it was a shock, we don’t get things like that.”
