The force said patrols were attending an address in Albion Place at around 8pm on Thursday (June 15) when the incident took place.

The officer, a police constable in his fifties, was airlifted to a London hospital after suffering stab wounds reportedly caused by a pair of scissors. He has since been discharged and is recovering at home.

Following an investigation by the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, the Crown Prosecution Service has now authorised a charge of attempted murder against Robert Jenner, 48, of Albion Place, Maidstone.

He was remanded in custody when he appeared at Medway Magistrates’ Court on Saturday (June 17) and will next appear at Maidstone Crown Court on Tuesday June 20.
