Detectives arrested a 30-year-old man from Dover on suspicion of assault on Sunday (August 8).

He has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

The victim, a man in his 30s, suffered a head injury which required hospital treatment.

A 38-year-old man was previously arrested on June 8 in connection with the incident and remains under investigation.

Investigating detectives said they would like to thank those who have already come forward with information so far.

They are still appealing for any witnesses who have not yet spoken to an officer to contact Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/92609/21.
