Assault with intent to Rob
George FUZZENS and Michael MURPHY alias Spang were indicted for feloniously assaulting one William RICHARDS on the 10th of February last, at Geelong, with intent to rob him. Both prisoners pleaded Not guilty. The prosecutor was met at twelve o’clock on the night in question, as he was walking up Malop Street, Geelong, by the two prisoners, who knocked him down and ill-used him. He cried out murder, and the police came to his assistance and arrested both prisoners, of whose identity he is certain. Verdict – Guilty. Sentence deferred.
“George Fuzzins and Michael Murphy to be each worked on the roads of the colony for ten years, the first two in irons”.
