Man stabbed by neighbour in JB over noise

JOHOR BARU: A man in his 50s was allegedly stabbed by his neighbour in Taman Permas Jaya here after they quarreled over noise.

Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Padzil Mohd Zain said a fight between the men broke out at around 1.15pm on Monday (July 19).

“The fight was said to have begun when the neighbour got angry at the man for making noise while cooking with his housemates behind the house.

“The neighbour then allegedly stabbed the man in the abdomen with a knife,” he said on Tuesday (July 20), adding that the suspect was arrested near the scene at around 2.45pm the same day.

The victim, who was rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment, is currently in stable condition, he added.

ACP Mohd Padzil said the neighbour had since been placed under remand for four days until July 23 for investigations under Section 324 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt with a weapon.
