572. CHARLES WASEM was indicted for stealing, on the 28th of February , a coat, value 12 s., and a shawl, value 1 s. , the goods of William Bullock .

WILLIAM BULLOCK . I am a taylor and live in White's-row, Spitalfields ; I saw this coat taken from over my door. I ran out and found the prisoner about a hundred yards off, with it under his arm. I called Stop thief! he looked round, I saw his face; he turned the corner, dropped it, and was secured. I am certain of him. I have see him before.

RICHARD PLUNKETT . I am an officer. I saw the prisoner struggling with the prosecutor and took him in charge; he said he would go with me as I was an officer.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

"I have got you, you rascal;" the man said it was me; and so he took me.
