a thug who ran in to edwin
John falsely accused Edwin of shoving him / assault.
Later, he arrived at his house and went to bed, but was awoken by noises. The house was dark, and a voice started speaking to him asking him to admit to some unknown sin.
He tried to leave, but found the exits sealed. The voice was more insistent, and when he did not reply a figure assaulted him, knocking him to the floor and kicking him savagely. He admitted cheating on and hitting his wife, as well as countless other crimes, but the beating did not stop – his hands were stomped on, and his ribs crushed. As suddenly as it began, it stopped.
He coughed up blood, praying he would live to see daylight.
