Lister Lane, Halifax
21st November 1938

Posted in > >

21 year old Mary Sutcliffe finished her shift at Mackintosh's toffee factory and was heading back home rather late - around 10.10pm.

As she crossed Lister Lane, a strange man leapt out from underneath a street light with his hand raised. Sutcliffe raised her arm in an instinctive defensive gesture to ward off his blow and turned tail to run for home as fast as she could.

When arriving home, she discovered to her shock a deep slit in her wrist that later required four stitches. Her description was vague - a man between his mid 20s and 30s with 'prominent' eyes.
