This story begins at sunset, on one of the many walks that lawyer Utterson and Mr. Enfield made. They were walking through an alley in London, in the neighborhood of Soho, when an apartment caught their attention. This one, had no windows or balcony whatsoever. There was only one door in the lower floor. Mr. Enfield began to explain a strange event that had occurred in front of that floor. He explained that a man and a girl crossed face to face and the man started to trample on the girl and left her lying there on the floor.
