From the text:

All at once, I saw two figures: one a little man who was stumping along eastward at a good walk, and the other a girl of maybe eight or ten who was running as hard as she was able down a cross street. Well, sir, the two ran into one another naturally enough at the corner; and then came the horrible part of the thing; for the man trampled calmly over the child's body and left her screaming on the ground. It sounds nothing to hear, but it was hellish to see. It wasn't like a man; it was like some damned Juggernaut.

At first, Hyde is described as a small man with a limp. Suddenly, he tramples the little girl without a pause. Immediately after, Enfield says, "It wasn't like a man; it was like some damned Juggernaut."
