More violence in Ramsgate where a man could need at least a year to regain the full use of his right hand after being attacked with a knife while on his way home.
The 19-year-old was approached in Wellington Crescent by two men and a woman.
One of the men barred his way and tried to stab him in the stomach. The victim defended himself with his right arm but was slashed across his hand and wrist.
He needed 50 stitches to the external wound and severed tendons in his hand.
The offender and the other man and woman walked away down Madeira Hill following the incident late last Friday.
The man with the knife was described as having a foreign appearance, aged 17 to 20 and with black gelled hair.
The two other people with him were of a similar age.
