He felt the smash of truncheons on his elbows and iron-shod boots on his shins; he saw himself grovelling on the floor, screaming for mercy through broken teeth.
Он ощущал удары дубинки по локтю и подкованных сапог — по щиколоткам; видел, как ползает по полу и, выплевывая зубы, кричит «не надо!».

Rod passed through it, puffing off his gauntlets... and stepped into the middle of a semicircle of beggars and thieves, standing three deep and armed with truncheons and knives.
Род вошел в дом, стаскивая перчатки... и оказался посреди толпы нищих и воров, стоявших тройным заслоном с ножами и дубинками наготове.
