A man from Gravesend has been charged with the attempted murder of a Kent Police officer.

It is alleged Kuran Gill stabbed the officer, who was carrying out a search of a home on Sun Marsh Way, yesterday (April 21).

The officer sustained serious injury to his left arm and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Gill has been remanded in custody. He will face the charges against him at Medway Magistrates Court later today (April 22).

The injured officer has been discharged from the local hospital, but requires further treatment, Kent Police said.

A warrant was carried out at Gill's home at around 6am yesterday, as part of an operation by Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

The operation aimed to target individuals suspected to be involved in importing cannabis.

The 30-year-old has been charged with attempted murder, being concerned in the supply of cocaine, conspiring to import cannabis and acquiring criminal property.

A further two warrants were carried out on the same morning as part of the operation.

They took place in Buckland Hill, Maidstone, and The Boulevard, Fulham, and led to the arrests of two 30-year-old men.

Gregory Blacklock, of Buckland Hill, and Jag Singh, of The Boulevard, have since been charged with conspiring to import cannabis and have also been remanded in custody to attend Medway Magistrates’ Court today.
