Old Bailey Online Transcripts; t18210718-143:
DANIEL RYAN was indicted for stealing, on the 7th of June , one watch-chain, value 3 l.; two seals, value 2 l., and one key, value 10 s., the goods of William Barratt , from his person.
WILLIAM BARRATT . On the 7th of June, about ten minutes before ten o’clock at night, I was coming down Liquorpond-street ; there were three young men in company before me; one of them came alongside of me and shoved me on the curb, and the prisoner came up and snatched my watch, and ran away. I ran down Crown-court after him, through Sparrow’s-rents, into Portpool-lane. He cried Stop thief! he stopped, turned round, and came towards me - I caught hold of him; he said, “It is not me, Sir.” I am positive of him; he threw my watch away; he had three or four companions.
THOMAS SMITH . I live in Liquorpond-street. I saw the prisoner rob Mr. Barratt, and am sure he is the boy.
GUILTY . Aged 16.
Transported for Life .
First Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
