CHARGE, OF ASSAULT BY BAILIFFS DIFFEiRENT VEIRSIONS OF A SER- VICE! INCIDENT. At the Bangor Police Court on Tues- day, before Mr Wi. Pughe and other magistrates, Richard Owen Roberts, a, cashier and clerk, in the service of a Liverpool firm at. their Bangor branch, charged Hugh Williams, a bailiff of the Bangor County Court, with assault and battery. Mr S. Ri. Dew, who appeared for the complainant, said the incidents which led to the present, charge occurred on the 5ith March. The Liverpool firm's establish- ment was entered from the street by a door between two windows. The residential portion of the premises, in which lived Mr Oldroyd, the local agent, was entered by a separate door at the side of the shop. On the date in question an execution was issued from the Bangor County Court against the goods of Mr Oldroyd, which were supposed to be contained in the resi- dential portion of the premises. This warrant was delivered to a bailiff of the name of Brookes. On the arrival of the bailiffs Brookes rang the side-door bell and was admitted bv the maid. Williams entered the shop through the public en- trance. A door communicated between the shop and the, residential parts. Williams, saying he was going into the house, ad- vanced to the door. The complainant put his back against it and told the defen- dant that no one was allowed to go into the house through the shop. The de- fendant caught complainant by the throat with one hand, and struck him on the mouth with the other, and tried to force his way into the house.. Hearing the noise Brookes, the other bailiff, who had got into the house by the side door, push- ed the inner door open. On Brookes's arrival the defendant again got hold of the complainant by the throat and flourished a stick over his head, and then let him go. Replying to Mr James Porter, who de- fendedi the complainant said he did not know tihat the defendant was present in his capacity as a bailiff. Although he was paid by the Liverpool firm he was a servant of Mr Oldroyd. Later on the com- plainant heard a crash, and going in he saw Mr Oldroyd on the floor and the two bailiffs on the top of him. Further evidence was given by Mary Meade, maid, and Mr Oldroyd in support of Mr Dew's opening. Mr Oldroyd, replying to Mr Porter, said he was the tenant of the place, and sub-let to the Liverpool firm. The defendant gave evidence, and ab- solutely denied the complainant's version of the incidents. He never struck the de- fendant at all. He simply pushed him away. After hearing other evidence, the Bench dismissed the case. Mr Dew opened a second charge against Hugh Williams, preferred by Mr Old- royd. The Bench, after a-prolonged hear- ing, stoped the case, and dismissed it, ob- serving that there was a good deal of dis- crepancy in the evidence on both sides.
