With a piece of conduit already in his hand, he tried two strikes, without hitting the individual, who, aided by another, who came from inside the central – passing through the window – helped the first to dominate the witness. Now dominated, he was suspended and released, several times, to fall to the ground, abandoned by the two; he received a slap on the back from the individual in the yellow shirt, followed by the following words: “go away, you tramp, that we will return when this work is over.
