Attempted Murder Of A Chemist

Post by Karen on Mon 6 Dec 2010 - 21:57

This incident occurred in Berner-street on September 16, 1888, only 8 days after Chapman's murder and two weeks before the Stride murder in Dutfield's Yard, Berner-street.


CHARGE OF ATTEMPTED MURDER. - Wm. Seaman, 40, of peculiar appearance, and described as a builder, of 11, Prince's-street, Whitechapel, was charged with attempting to kill John Simkin, chemist, of 82, Berner-street, Whitechapel. - The prosecutor was too ill to attend on account of the severe injuries he had received. - Charles M'Carthy, a labourer, of 11, Ellen's-place, Ellen-street, Whitechapel, stated about 12 o'clock on Saturday night he was walking along Ellen-street. He heard a scream in the direction of Berner-street, and went to a chemist's shop at 82, Berner-street, kept by prosecutor. Simkin, whose head was bleeding, was behind his counter, and the prisoner was standing in the shop. The former said to witness, "Here is the hammer he hit me with," and he then handed him the hammer produced. The prisoner did not make any remark, neither did he attempt to make his escape. - Witness could not say if he had been drinking. The police then came and took the accused into custody. - Constable 85 H said prosecutor, who was an elderly man, was lying at home dangerously injured. When the prisoner was arrested he said, "I shan't tell you what I did it for, but I will tell the magistrate." He had been drinking. - Mr. Saunders remanded the prisoner.
