The need of pĆ³lice protection in Ypsilanti was emphasized Sunday night by two dastardly attempted criminal assaults. Miss Annajudd, a bright and estimable young lady was passing near fifth ward school, in which she is a teacher, at about eight o'clock, on her way home, when she was grabbed by a burly ruffian, who choked her and dragged her some distance up a steep jank into the school yard. Two gentlemen, who heard her scream, came to her rescue, and when withn three rods of him, the villian saw them and ran away. Miss Judd was n an insensible condition, her face ulack and distorted, so that she was not at once recognized by her 'riends. She was unconscious for a ongtime, and had she been strangled much longer, would have been beyond human aid. The same night, Mrs. Hattie Filkins, a domestic, while returning from church, was assaulted near the Normal school, by a villian who gagged and chloroformed her. The opportune arrival of some students drove him away. Neither ruffian has been discovered.
