Found this on the Old Bailey website:
Here is a case bringing in a suspect on suspicion of being the Whitechapel murderer on 23 November 1888. It says of the unnamed man "and he was charged with behaving in such a strange manner that Dew thought he might be the Whitechapel murderer."
edit- Mistakes were made in the post. Fife wasn't a poiceman at all. I must read more closely. This concerned the Great Silk Robberies. See scans below.

The Old Bailey seems to have gone west.
Shame, JM, I'd like to read that.

Thanks for that second link, Debs.
Here are relevant pages from the book 'The Man Who Hunted Jack the Ripper' by Stewart Evans and Nick Connell. Thank you to SPE for providing these.
