Extract

This was the case in which a man ran “amok” in a common lodging-house at night, wounding four persons. The evidence showed that the prisoner with six other men slept in one room. About midnight a man who slept in the same bed with prisoner roused the rest by crying “murder.” A light was struck, and the prisoner was seen to rush at one Thrustle, who was still in bed. Thrustle fled, but prisoner pursued him out of the room and down the stairs, stabbing him, in all, six times. Prisoner ran off in his shirt, and at half-past five next morning presented himself at the police station, stating that he had stabbed five or six men who had been following him all night with lights. He had then a knife in one hand and a pricker in the other.
