Useful information about location:
"...From the evidence it appeared that the prisoners had been living at a lodging-house, in the Mwldan, kept by Elizabeth Evans, and on the evening in question Mrs. Evans went to the police station and requested that a constable might be sent to her house to eject Michael Hallard, who was drunk, and had threatened to take her life with a knife. P.C. Joseph Lloyd went down to the house, and succeeded in getting Michael into the street, when a rough-and-tumble fight occurred between them, and they both fell into the Mwldan, where the prisoner bit the constable on the forehead. The mark of the bite was plainly visible on the constable's forehead. With the assistance of Messrs. R. J. Roberts (son of Inspector Roberts), Stephen Morgan, and James Jeremiah, the constable succeeded in extricating himself and his prisoner from the river, and they then proceeded towards the lock-up by way of Pendre. When opposite the Boadicea public-house, the second prisoner, James Hallard, made his appearance on the scene, having come up from the Mwldan by the steps near old Bethania Chapel."
