Monday 3 June 1918, The Sydney Morning Herald

ARMIDALE, Saturday.

For some time past a man, armed with a revolver and speaking a foreign tongue, has been breaking and entering land owners’ homes in the Rockvale district. The latest heard of him was in the Rampsbeck and Hernani districts. The police and trackers have been in pursuit. He states that he will shoot the police if he encounters them. The last time he was seen he was making towards Grafton. The police, though searching for a fortnight, have not yet met him.
