& # 39; I look like a few arguing family groups and we hope some mediation can help with that & # 39 ;, said Commander Tennosaar.
& # 39; The police are there to try and keep the peace, while the elderly in family groups tend to discuss issues that cause the problem. & # 39;
Minyerri and Ngukurr police have been called on site to help other officers.
There are no costs involved and the investigation is still ongoing.
