In February 1722 Captain Chaloner Ogle of HMS Swallow baited Roberts into attacking his 50-gun warship. Mistaking it for a fleeing merchantman, Roberts sent Skyrme in Ranger to capture it. Once Ranger was alone, Ogle sprung his trap and opened fire on the pirates. After a short battle Ranger was heavily damaged, a number of pirates had been killed, and Skyrme's leg was sheared off by cannon fire.
