“Jack the Ripper” outrage in Liverpool

June 17, 1909
A Liverpool wire states five or six women have been the victims in that town of “Jack the Ripper” outrages, and that two cases are now under treatment in one of the public institutions.

It is stated that the victims were decoyed into a dark street or alley and then attacked, the instrument used being evidently a sharp knife or lance. The wound in each case was in the same region of the body.
The “Ripper” is described as being of dark complexion, and about 25 years of age.
