John Randall was indicted for a Robbery upon the Highway committed upon one David Mot on the 28th of May last past ; the said Mot and one more were walking one Evening in Southampton Fields , and the Prisoner and three more Rogues met them, and bound them, and took from Mot a Cloth Coat value 50s. a Wastecoat value 20s. a Hat value 15s. and several other things from the other Person, besides 20s. in Money from Mot. The Evidence was very sure that the Prisoner was one of the Men that set upon them. The Prisoner called some Women, &c. who said that he was in another place at the same time, but their Evidence was not Credited by the Jury, because they were found in several Stories, so were entrap'd by the Court; he was found guilty .
