Griffin entered the clergyman’s house with the intention to steal money. He opened the desk and stole the money. When people came to know about the burglary, they suspected the stranger. They secretly sent for the village constable, Mr. Jaffers to confirm their suspicion. The scientist became furious and threw off his bandages, whiskers, spectacles and false nose. Mr. Jaffers was surprised that he had to arrest a headless man. He tried to get hold of the man who was becoming more and more invisible. The constable was struggling with someone who could not be seen at all. Some people tried to assist him but received blows. The constable was knocked unconscious and Griffin escaped from there, and no one knew where to lay hands on him.
