On the 24th of April, about one o’clock, my neighbour gave me information - I ran out and saw the prisoner about twelve doors off, and saw him drop two of Dickinson’s coats and run away; I picked them up - I had put them into a box on the first-floor room on that day; I had heard nobody up stairs - Parteridge pursued and took her.
JOHN PARTERIDGE. I am a beadle. I heard an alarm - saw the prisoner running, and took her.
