471. (L.) Andrew Rogan was indicted for maliciously and feloniously making an assault upon Mark Davis , and demanding his money, with an intent the money of the said, Mark to steal . June 20 ++.

Mark Davis . I live in New Castle-street, White-chapel; I was going home from Poor-jewry-lane, on the 20th of June, at night; the prisoner overtook me in Aldgate High-street and said, sir, you must deliver, and collared me; I did not see that he had any weapon; I shoved him from me; he made a blow at me, and struck me over the shoulder; I called out watch! and he ran; the watchman knocked him down on the other side White-Chapel-Bar. I was but about twenty yards from him I believe.

Q. Are you sure the prisoner is the man that stopped you?

Davis. Yes, I am sure of it. It is very light under the lamps, and I saw him standing at the corner of Poor-Jewry-lane before that.

John Somers . I heard the cry of stop thief about half past twelve o'clock. I saw the prisoner running out of Aldgate-high-street, so I knocked him down.

Prisoner's Defence.

The gentleman charges me with meaning to rob him, Is it probable that I should stop two gentlemen without having any weapon?

Prosecutor. There was a gentleman with me, but he ran into the highway.
