DASTARDLY ASSAULTS ON TWO WOMEN NEAR COWBRIDGE. WOMEN NEAR COWBRIDGE. At the Llandaff police-court on Monday— before Messrs G. C. Dornford, Evan Lewis, and Henry Lewis—William Naylor, labourer, was charged with aggravated assaults on Joanna Santry and Mary Ann Cokeley, 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 thev were^ coming from Cowbrirlge laden somewhat heavily with watercress, anil 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 mad* an improper offer to Santry. She got up along with her companions to go, and bade the man ''goodnight' He then caught her and thrust her back agam into the hedge, in the n-fr-antirne taking hoerties with her. Twice Santry ro up,but owing to the basket of watercrei-ses being strung round her neck she could not move freely, and was forced back into the heaga again. Prisoner afterwards exposed her and pulled her about so much that she was nearly faint. Sub- sequently Cokeley seized the man "and compelled him to let go the other woman. In return she received a seveie 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 tearing to be discovered, wenr away. The other man took no part in the assaults, and proceeded on his way. A police officer afterwards arrested the prisoner in a lodging-house, at Caerau. To the constable he pleaded ignorance of the whole atfair, and at the police-court he repeated his assertion denying that he knew even that he was with another man on the occasion. He added that he had 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 being assaulted by a ruffian like you prove to be. For 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.
