Sutton In The News - 132 Years Ago This Week:
'THE SERIOUS ASSAULT UPON A BOLD FARMER'
At St. Helens, yesterday, James Pemberton, farmer, Bold, was charged on remand with assaulting Thomas Lowe, Maypole Farm, Bold, with intent to do him grievous bodily harm. Prosecutor stated that about half-past nine on Saturday night, the 18th March, he went into the Wheat Sheaf Inn, St. Helens Junction, where he found the prisoner and several other persons. Prosecutor had some conversation, and left the house at half-past ten. He saw prisoner about five yards from him, but neither spoke just then. Prosecutor struck out into the private road, leaving Pemberton near the gate. While passing through a ploughed field, he heard running footsteps immediately behind him, and he was in the act of turning round when he was struck and knocked down on his knees. He could not tell what the blow was inflicted with, but it was something harder than a man's fist. He received the blow full on the right eye and fell. He heard Pemberton's voice say, "That is what I came this way for." He got up as soon as he could, and went to Mr. Jones's house, where his eye was bathed and bandaged. Afterwards he was confined to bed for a fortnight. He did not strike the prisoner nor speak to him at the time of the encounter. Dr. Gaskell said there was a wound on the right eye extending right across it. The contents of the eye had escaped, and the cavity was filled with clotted blood. Witness and Dr. Hay removed the remains of the eye. The bench committed the prisoner for trial at the assizes, admitting him to bail, himself in £200 and two sureties of £100 each.
