NT Police Guard Commander Siiri Tennosaar said additional police were sent to Numbulwar when fighting broke out between fighting family groups on Monday.

& # 39; The police started around five o'clock & # 39; receive reports from the community in the afternoon that large groups of people gathered to fight and that some were armed with crossbows and other weapons, & she said.

& # 39; It seems like a few arguing family groups and we hope that mediation can help with that.

& # 39; The police are there to try to keep the peace, while the elderly in family groups tend to discuss issues that cause the problems. We will certainly try to help those family groups to make peace. & # 39;

Extra police from Minyerri and Ngukurr will stay in Numbulwar to help the local station and investigations into violations are ongoing.
