A man was later seen running off at 2.45am. The man was described as being about 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins tall with dark clothing and either very dark hair or a black bobble hat. He was said to have had a vacant look and a long, drawn and pale looking face. A witness said that it looked like the man had just had an electric shock and had been walking a bit hesitantly. It was also thought that he might have been wearing a dark coloured knitted skull cap that was too small for him.
Police said that they were also keen to speak to a man that David OLeary had had an argument with in the DV8 nightclub in Marine Terrace, Margate, on 8 February 2008.
David OLeary ran a scaffolding business.
