DASTARDLY ASSAULTS ON TWO WOMEN NEAR COWBRiDGE. At the Llandaff police-court this múrning- before Messrs G. C. Dornford, Evan Lewis, and Henry Lewis Williarr. Naylor, labourer, was charged with aggravated assaults on Joanna V Santry and Mary Ann Cokelev, on Saturday last.—From the evidence of the two women and a companion named Catherine Brodrick, it appears that between ten and eleven o'clock on Saturday night they were coming from Cowbridge laden somewhat heavily with watercress, and near Sweldon Farm they heard the prisoner and another man coming along singing a ribald song. The women stopped beside the hedge to rest, whom prisoner observing as he came up, crossed over, and in course language made an improper offer to Santry. She got up along with her companions to go, and bade the man good night' He then caught her and thrust her back again into tbe hedge, in the meantime taking liberties with her. Twice Santry rose up,but owing to the basket of watercresses being strung round her neck she could not move freely, and was forced back into the hedge again. Prisoner afterwards exposed her and pulled her about so much that she was nearly faint. Sub- sequently Cokelev seized the man and compelled him to let go the other woman. In return she received a severe blow of the fist in her face. Fearing that the man would prevail over them, they set up a united screaming, and the prisoner, probably fearing to be discovered, went away. The other man took no part in the assaults, and proceeded on his way. A police officer afterwards arrested the prisoners in a lodging-house, at Caerau. To the constable he pleaded ignorance of the whole affair, and at the police-court he repeated his assertion denying that he knew even that be was with another man on the occasion. He added that he bad *been drinking all day. The women, however, all swore to the identity of the prisoner with the man who assaulted the two of them. The bench retired for a few minutes to de- liberate, and on returning, the chairman said, We are unanimous that you committed these assaults. It is a most abominable thing that women cannot walk along the public highway without poing assaulted by a ruffian like you prove to be. I c the aggravated assault on Santry you will have to go to gaol for three months, and for the assault on Cokeley another month—four months' hard labour.The Prisoner (laughing) All right; good day.
