Lannamer Department Gendarme
Seventh Grid, North-East Quadrant
Kostya Ninth, Year R.950
Officer Kezkies Reporting
Standard patrol of Quadrant, clockwise spiral as per patrol rotation.
About mid-way through the patrol, heard noises coming from Ilaztudzob-Azen’s accounting shop. Hurried to location, as there have been troubles in that area recently, while signalling for back-up.
Arrived to find three people in altercation: shouting, hitting one another, swinging about ledger books. First person was Counter Ilaztudzob-Azen himself; second and third persons not identified at that time.
They had not seen the signal, or, if had, assumed it was for someone else. Indeed, three involved parties seemed to have no concern they might be doing something illegal or even obnoxious, despite the late hour – just past the turning of the clock.
Took effort to remove each fighter from fight individually, but, as none of them wanted to be removed, had to resort to force. Nose broken in second attempt to move eighty-seven-year-old Ilaztudzob-Azen out of combat.
Backup arrived, at which point we could restrain elder Ilaztudzob-Azen and two much younger combatants.
Said combatants, once interviewed, were Gilrup-Lye and Lyevnepsa-Gil, who own a shop on the edge of Seventh Grid, North-West Quadrant (against 8th Grid North-East). They accused Ilaztudzob-Azen of cheating them; Ilaztudzob-Azen accused them of nonpayment.
Date has been set for hearing on cheating v. non-payment in front of the Magistrate. Second date set for hearing on violent altercations and assaulting gendarme. As all three are locals, with businesses in Seventh Grid, released on own recognizance.
Witnessed by Officers Kezkies, Tankun, and Irestantya.
