Barry Bullies at Penarth ?olica…


Barry Bullies at Penarth ?olica Court. Antony Gamola and (xeors-e Sams, two foreigners of the seafaring- class, were brought up at Penarth Police Court, on Wednesday, charged with unlawfully cutting and wounding a butcher's assistant, named Wm. Macdoriald, the previous evening near the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock. The evidence of the injured man who bore the mark of a stab in the face, was to the effect that about 8.30. p.m. he heard a row near the hotel when be himself was inside. He rushed out with a crowd of others, and whilst standing there felt a blow on the cheek. On turning round he saw prisoner Gamola, with a knife open, standing at his side. Witness tried to defend himself and evaded a second stab in the face y warding off the knife with his hand- Gamola, however, got around and stabbed him again in the hip. Witness then cried for assistance and prisoner made off. This being the whota of the prosecutor's evidence a difficulty arose with regard to Sams, who said he did not understand E! glish. The Court waited for a time whilst some of the police officers endeavoured to-obtain an interpreter. No person could be found able to do this, and the prisoners were consequently remanded in custody until Friday when they will be brought up at Barry Dock.
