Ada Wilson

OUTRAGE AT BOW.

ATTACK ON A WOMAN.
PURSUING THE ASSAILANT.

At an early hour this morning an outrage of a most determined character was perpetrated upon a woman named Ada Wilson, who occupies a house at 9, Milman's-street, Burdett-road, Bow. Two constables on duty near that thoroughfare were shortly after midnight informed that a young person was being murdered at the address named. Upon the policemen running to the house, they discovered Ada Wilson lying in the passage in a pool of blood, bleeding from a wound in the throat, apparently caused by a direct stab from a knife. The victim was at once conveyed to the London Hospital, Whitechapel, where her injuries were attended to. Subsequent inquiries made by the police revealed the fact that a dispute arose between the woman and a young man whom she alleged to be her husband; and, after quarrelling with the woman, he stabbed her in the throat, and made his escape by the front door of the house. He was pursued for some distance by a neighbour living opposite, who heard loud screams proceeding from No. 9. But the would-be murderer sharply turned a corner, and was soon lost in the labyrinth of streets. A fairly accurate description of his appearance has, however, been obtained, and has already been circulated at the various Metropolitan Police-stations. He was from 25 to 30 years of age, medium height (about 5ft. 5in.), sunburnt face, fair moustache, and wore light trousers, a dark coat, and a wideawake hat.

A JEWESS'S STATEMENT.

Ease Bierman, a young Jewess, lodging at 9, Milman's-street, made the following statement this afternoon: "Ada Wilson, the injured woman, is the occupier of the house, but at the time of the outrage she was under notice to quit. I knew Mrs. Wilson as a married woman, although I had never seen her husband. Last evening she came into the house, accompanied by a male companion, but whether he was her husband or not I could not say. She has often had visitors to see her; but I have rarely seen them myself, as Mrs. Wilson lives in the front room, her bedroom being just at the back, adjoining the parlour. My mother and I occupy two rooms upstairs. Well, I don't know who the young man was, but about midnight I heard the most terrible screams one can imagine. Running downstairs I saw Mrs. Wilson, partially dressed, wringing her hands and crying, "Stop that man from cutting my throat. He has stabbed me." Then she fell fainting in the passage. I saw all that as I was coming downstairs, but as soon as I commenced to descend I noticed a young, fair man rush to the front door and let himself out. He did not seem somehow to unfasten the catch as if he had been accustomed to do so before. He had a light coat on, I believe. I don't know what kind of a wound Mrs. Wilson had received, but it must have been deep, I should say, from the quantity of blood in the passage. I don't know what I shall do myself. I am now "keeping the Feast," and how can I do so with what has occurred here? I am now going to remove to other lodgings."
