LUNATIC AT LARGE. A CITIZEN ATTACKED.

At Albury Police Court on Tuesday afternoon, before Mr H. F. Roberts, P.M., Charles Edward Brooker, aged 48, was charged with being deemed to be insane and found wandering at large in Dean-street yesterday afternoon.

Sergeant Blackburne stated that at a quarter to four on Tuesday afternoon was brought to the lock-up by Mr Hamilton Charnock Mott, who stated that be saw him standing in Dean street, near Burrows Old Mill, gesticulating and apparently in a violent rage.

As Mr Mott passed along on the other side of the road the defend- ant rushed across at him, jabbering in a threatening manner. He then picked up a stone and threw it at Mr Mott, who put up his hand to save his face. The stone struck Mr Mott's hand, and caused the blood to flow. Mr Mott said he would not prosecute, as he did not consider the defendant respon- sible for his actions.

Witness had known Brooker for the past six or seven years, and he had always been looked upon as a harmless fool. Of late, however, he had been becoming more violent. About four weeks ago witness had seen him chasing a num- ber of boys in the street.

About week ago he had seen defendant in front of the Mechanics' Institute stamping about the footpath in a violent temper. Witness induced him to go away.

At the present time he considered Brooker insane and unfit to be at large, and might in one of his violent moods do some person an injury. At the request of Sergeant Blackburne, Brooker was remanded for a week for medical observation
