On May 22, 1856, a man was brutally beaten with a heavy metal-capped cane. The attacker approached his target from behind, and then repeatedly crashed his cane into the skull of the seated victim, who tried to rise, bloodied and dazed. The assault continued for a full 60 seconds, until the victim was unconscious, and was carried from the room, as the attacker walked unchallenged from the scene of the crime.
