POLICE INTELLIGENCE.
THAMES.

Singular Charge Against The Police.

A Mr. Albert Bechart, [Bachert] of Gordon House, Newnham Street, Whitechapel, made a complaint to Mr. Lushington respecting the conduct of two police constables. Last Thursday fortnight he saw two constables interfering with a respectable woman, who was talking with her brother-in-law in the Commercial Road. Applicant told the officers he knew the woman and asked them for their numbers. They struck him, and afterwards knocked him down. The officers took him into custody, and having dragged him along the road afterwards let him go, saying they had made a mistake. Although he had since seen a number of constables, and had been in communication with the inspector, he had been unable to identify the two men in question. Applicant had since heard that there was a conspiracy amongst the police to raise a trumpery charge against him and take him into custody. His object in coming to the magistrate was to make him acquainted with the facts of the affair in case a trumpery charge might be brought against him.

Mr. Lushington replied that if any case came before him he would remember applicant had been there.

Applicant thanked his worship and withdrew.
