A DOUGLAS VISITOR'S DRIVE INTO THE COUNTRY. ♦ John Elliott, car proprietor, was charged at Douglas, on Friday, with unlawfully assaulting James Cameron, a Scotch visitor, and Agnes M'Gill, of Dublin, on a lonely road three miles from Douglas. Cameron hired the defendant to drive himself and the other complainant. The defendant drove them into the country, when he stopped the car, got inside, and attempted to in- decently assault the woman. Cameron inter- fered, whereupon the defendant knocked him down, cut him over the eye, and afterwards re- peatedly assaulted him. Cameron lost his watcbguard, subsequently found on the road. A 95 note was also lost, and had not been found. Defendant drove away with the woman, leaving Cameron on the ground. Subsequently Cameron walked into the town, and gave information to the police, who arrested the defendant. Cameron said he gave the defendant no provocation, and had not been drinking. The defendant alleged that Cameron was behaving indecently to the woman, who was crying Murder,' but this was strongly denied. Agnes M'Gill corroborated Cameron's statement. She denied the allega- tion of indecency alleged by the defendant, and said the latter, when he had his knee on Cameron's breast, put his hand in his pockets. She said the defendant left Cameron behind on the road, and tried to assault her. Cameron's face was covered with blood. The Stipendiary said there was no doubt an assault had been committed on the parties, no matter who they were, though not of an aggravated nature.—Defendant was fined £1 and costs, or 21 days' imprisonment.
