Alleged Threats

Robert Green, collier, Denaby, was the defendant in a summons issued by George Caspell, charging him with using threats to him at the place mentioned, on July 26th.

Mr. Gichard prosecuted, and Mr. J. W. Rowlands defended.

According to the evidence, it appeared that complainant beard a noise near to his house and upon going outside he saw the defendant who addressed him, saying “Come outside and I will fight you, you ——– black sheep and maniac.”

Complainant feared that Green would do him some bodily harm.

After hearing further evidence, the Chairman said the Bench did not find that the defendant had taken any steps to induce anybody else to intimidate the complainant, and, therefore the case would be dismissed.
