Help Request : 1890/1891 Arrest
I seem to recall a newspaper account from late 1890, like December 1890, or early January 1891, of it being reported by a newspaper that the police had arrested somebody as the Ripper, or were about to (obviously earlier than the Coles murder and Sadler).
Can anyone help ?

There was a "Jack the Ripper scare" in Doncaster and a man was arrested in January 1891, though it seems to have been a matter of rapes or attempted rapes rather than murder and mutilation - or as you would put it, How, 'Death and Disembowelment in Doncaster.'
