ARRESTED AS JACK THE RIPPER

Alfred Hinde, 67, bootmaker and repairer, of Winstanley Road, Wellingborough, who was knocked down and killed by an omnibus at Wellingborough on Friday night, was once detained by a detective in London, who thought that he had caught the notorious Jack the Ripper. Hinde went to assist a woman calling for help and fought the woman's assailant, who made off. A detective who appeared thought that Hinde was the aggressor and took him to the police station. Witnesses came forward to clear Hinde, who had been injured in the struggle with the man. The police paid for his hospital treatment.
