ATTACK UPON AN OFFICER. Lieutenant M. G. Crofton, of the 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers, Chatham, has been the victim of an extraordinary outrage. A man broke into his quarters at two o'clock in the morning, and, arming himself with a Cretan pistol which was hanging upon a wall, sh'uck the sleeping officer a blow on the head with the butt end of the weapon. The assailant made his escape in the darkness, but apparently re- turned whilst. Lieutenant Crofton was away at the hospital having the wound dressed and stole two watches and other property, together the value of £60. A soldier in the Lancashire Fusiliers named Frank Massey was subsequently found to be attempt- ing to pawn the siolen watchcs, and was apprehended by the police on the charges of making the mur- derous attack upon Lieutenant Crofton and of burglary. The prisoner was brought before Mr. Athawes. stipendiary magistrate at Chatham, but was remanded, the injured officer not being in a fit con- dition to attend.
