Split event into multiple events

I am indexing syslog traps stored to a file. I am building a transaction based on that where if the value of a particular field extracted with rex changes. However, it would seem sometimes that the indexer records two specific events as one. This is obviously messing with results, as the second event is not considered. I am looking for a workaround. This event represents two different events upon which my transaction search requires to function. If the second one isn't considered, my transaction command will fail:

How can I tell splunk how to split these up into two separate events?

Here is some great documentation on how you can break events.
