On Saturday April 8, 1893, around 10:00 pm, while walking the streets of Carlisle on patrol, Martin observed a man acting in a suspicious manner on the outskirts of town. Martin knew the man as a burglar and followed him. When the suspect noticed the officer, he started to run down Dickinson Alley and up South Street. He then turned into a narrow dark lane near the graveyard with the officer close behind.
