Frederick White, aged 42, who described himself as a commission agent, was charged with using threatening language to a young woman named Mary Ann Galling. The woman was entering Moorgate Street railway station on Wednesday evening, when the prisioner, whom she did not know and had never seen before, attempted to strike up a conversation with her. She pointedly declined to have any conversation with him, whereupon he struck at her saying, 'I will rip you up, I am Jack the Ripper, if I don't do it now I shall know you again'. The woman ran away, whereupon the man proceeded to follow her making an attempt to trip her up. Galling quickly, and rather fortunately, ran into police Constable Stringer who apprehended White and took him into custody. In court, White made a rambling statement in answer to the charge and was fined 10s.
