"At the Birmingham Police Court, yesterday-before Messrs. Harris and J. Lowe - David Robinson [21], living in Price Street, was charged with unlawfully wounding Joseph Price, brass-polisher, of the back of 14, Rodway Street, on the 11th May. Mr. Dorsett [instructed by Mr. F. Hooper] defended. Prosecutor said that on the night named he went to the Castle and Falcon licensed house, Snow Hill, where he had a drink. There was some disturbance in the house, and Thomas Jones, the manager, attempted to put him out. He said that he would leave the place unassisted, but Jones insisted upon thrusting him out, and struck him in the face, thus treated he ran away, and went into the private kitchen of the Barrel public house, where he asked to be allowed to remain. Immediately afterwards there was a rush at the door, and about a dozen people entered the room. Jones was among them, and again struck him and knocked him down. While on the ground he was kicked by a number of persons, and felt something sharp enter his leg. As soon as he could get up he ran out of the house. He was followed down Snow Hill and again attacked. He became partly unconscious, and does not remember much more until he found himself at the hospital. He refused to allow the doctor to sew a wound in his leg, and would not remain as a patient; but after being attended by a private medical man up to the 19th May he became an inmate of the General Hospital, where he was detained until Wednesday. He did not know the prisoner, and did not remember seeing him on the 11th of May. He had examined the trousers and pants he was wearing, and had found cuts in them corresponding with the wound on the right leg. Cross-examined : When he went to the Castle and Falcon he was sober. Jones asked him if be was going to have another, and he made a remark which did not seem to please Jones. Helena Fanny Green, manageress of the Barrel public house, said that she heard a noise in the private kitchen, and on going there saw a number of men. The prisoner was on the floor, and Jones was striking him. A man named Hemsley pulled Jones away from Price but, rushing at him again, Jones said, "Take this, you *******," and struck him with an open knife. Although she had not seen the prisoner before, she was positive he was the man. Alfred Allen, postman, also gave evidence. Mr. G. H. Holden, house-surgeon, General Hospital, said that when Price came to the hospital on the 11th of May he was under the influence of drink. He had an incised wound on the right knee-cap about four inches long. When Price returned on the 19th May his leg was badly inflamed. and he was very ill. Cross-examined : The trousers looked more like having been torn than cut. The wound might have been caused by a fall. The defence was reserved, and the prisoner committed to the sessions for trial. Bail was refused."
