'Tilley Devine's' Husband Treated For Stab Wound
Mrs. Matilda Parsons, better known as "Tilly Devine," sat be- side her husband's bed to-night as doctors treated him for a stab wound in the cheek.
"Tilly," in slippers, her fingers glittering with rings, would not see reporters who attempted to interview her in the casualty room at St. Vincent's Hospital.
Her husband, Eric Parsons, 50, told police that about 8 p.m. two
men knocked on the front door of his home in Malabar Road, Malabar.
He opened the door, and one of the men struck him on the cheek with an object, probably a knife.
Doctors inserted one stitch in
the wound, and allowed him to
C.I.B. consorting squad detec- tives were called in, but Parsons told them he did not seek police action.
