Case File: Lynceus and Idas vs. Castor and Pollux

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainants (Lynceus and Idas) accuse Defendants (Castor and Pollux) of kidnapping. Castor and Pollux fell in love with some maidens named Phoebe and Hilaeria, so they snatched them and took them to Sparta. Their cousins, Lynceus and Idas, were already engaged to the young ladies, though, so they were pretty ticked off.

Case Status: Case dismissed. All's fair in love and... stealing fiancées?
