A 53 year old man with depression was jailed 3 years after he viciously attacked a 69 year old neighbour for being too noisy. The man attacked the old grandma with a 1.4m wooden pole and gave her multiple fractures which required 8 hours of corrective surgery.
On 22 October 2016, the man found a long wooden pole and hid it at a rubbish point biding his time to ambush the old lady. He claimed that the old lady was too loud when speaking and wanted to teach her a lesson for dragging furniture at home.
As the old lady walked by the void deck, he ambushed her from behind and used the wooden pole to whack her head, body and arms till she lost consciousness and bled. Luckily a neighbour heard her cries for help and rushed to her aid.
