162. THOMAS ALLEN was indicted for stealing, on the 27th of September , 4 lbs. of bacon, value 2 s. , the goods of Thomas Port .

THOMAS PORT . I am a cheesemonger , and live in Brook-street, Fitzroy-square : On the 27th of September, about nine o'clock at night, I heard a noise, turned round, and saw the prisoner moving something off the counter, and soon after he went to another counter; I saw a piece of bacon under his coat, and went to the door - I called to him; he did not answer. I overtook him in the street, and asked him for the bacon from under his coat; he was going to strike me. I took him back - it was found down the area of the next house, on the spot where he stood when he was going to strike me.
