From the York Herald, 1828:
Street Robbery.--- Joseph Mortimer and Thos. Madderah were charged with street robbery. The prosecutor Benjamin Farrer, is a stone mason, working at Naburn. On Saturday night last, he was drinking at the Lord Nelson public-house, in Jubbergate, until a late hour. He left the house in a state of intoxication, in company with the prisoners, who set they would set him home. A young man named Warren, and another followed the party down Castlegate, when Mortimer was seen to turn the prosecutor’s pockets inside out. The next morning, the prosecutor finding that he had been robbed of 10s, two knives, a silk handkerchief, and a rule, went to the public-house where he had been the preceding night. There he saw Warren, whom he recollected seeing at the time he was robbed, and gave him into the charge of a constable. Warren deposed to what he had witnessed, when the Lord Mayor committed Madderah and Mortimer until Saturday next, to give time for Warren to find out the young man he stated had also seen the robbery committed. His Lord-ship further required two sureties for Warren’s appearance on Saturday.
