Two men have been arrested after officers were called to a disturbance at an address on Canvey Island.

Police were called to reports of an aggravated burglary in Champlain Avenue shortly after 8.50pm last night, Wednesday April 5.

It was reported that two men had entered an address before threatening and assaulting a man inside.

Police believe it may be connected to a prior incident outside KFC, in High Street, Canvey, which took place between 8.20pm and 8.30pm.

During that incident, it was reported that a group of young people were fighting.

Acting Detective Sergeant Emma Taylor, of Canvey CID, said: “This is a fast-paced investigation, and we are following number of lines of enquiry.

Anyone with information on either incident can submit a report at or use the online Live Chat service available Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) between 10am-9pm.

Alternatively, you can call 101.

Please cite incident 1147 for the KFC incident or incident 1199 for the incident in Champlain Avenue.
