"In the bag I saw cigarettes and small scissors, and I reported this to the KBT and they entered.

I went upstairs and saw the couple cursing the seller and apparently there was a fight.

I asked the girl and the guy to get out of the Mashbir.

"On the way out, they started a barrage of curses that even I am ashamed to repeat their words. I asked them once more to leave the branch, and then the girl attacked me. I took out pepper spray for my own defense and sprayed a little in her direction, after that the guy who was with her threw a water bottle in my face, hitting my nose and breaking it "The eye socket. I collapsed on the floor and the couple fled the scene," Levy said.
