Sergeant Attwood's "Ripper"

Post by Karen on Sat 5 Feb 2011 - 15:45

STRANGE "RIPPER" INCIDENT.

Man Who Struggled Desperately for Fear of Missing His Last Train.

A quaint story of the "Jack-the-Ripper" scare in London is told by Sergeant Attwood, 61 K, who has just retired from the force on a pension after twenty-five years' service. For the past two years he was stationed at East Ham.
Formerly at Shadwell, he was specially selected to keep observation on certain women with a view to tracking down the wholesale murderer of Whitechapel and Spitalfields.
One evening, being suspicious regarding a well-dressed man who had just left a woman, the officer followed him to the railway station. The man boarded the last train, and Attwood promptly pulled him out. The man struggled desperately, and the pair rolling on the platform, nearly fell under the train.
Eventually the man was overpowered and taken to the police station, where he was detained, but subsequently liberated. The man said afterwards that he only struggled because he was afraid of losing his last train home.
