WATCH: Elderly man stabbed in the hand during argument between neighbours

An argument between two neighbours, both of them Maltese men, led to one of them, who is elderly, to being stabbed in his hand with a pocket knife.

The argument which broke out in Triq Psaila, Birkirkara broke out when the elderly man stopped the other man from parking his van in front of his house because he feared someone could enter his balcony by climbing on top of the van.

During the argument the driver of the van took out a pocket knife and stabbed the elderly man.

The fight was stopped by the elderly man’s son, after which the other man went back into his apartment.

District police and police from the Rapid Intervention Unit were called to the scene.
