George Sweeney

Sweeney, a 27 year old labourer of 20 Chigwell Street, Camberwell, was charged at the Southwick Police Court with being drunk and disorderly in the borough High Street. Constable Robert Walsh stated that he found Sweeney in the borough shouting that he was Jack the Ripper. A crowd had gathered around him and was beginning to became excited. Sweeney blamed his behaviour on toothache. He was fined 40s, or fourteen days hard labour.
