The officers said that Walker went into the place about 4 p.m. and when he brushed past Bert Colbert the latter told him to, "pull your knife and start cutting," and at the same time shoved Walker out of the door and into the street. In falling the Negro struck his forehead on a brick. He was immediately carried to the hospital where attaches said he sustained a concusion of the brain. Colbert had not been arrested up to late last night."
