A 31-year-old in northern Italy allegedly attacked his neighbours with an axe in revenge for them refusing to lend him money.


He crept into his neighbours’ apartment in Desio, north of Milan, in the early hours of Tuesday and attacked the couple as they slept, La Repubblica reported.

Other neighbours were woken by their screams and called the police.

The attacker was found in his apartment close by and arrested.

La Repubblica said the couple, who suffered multiple injuries, had refused to lend him money the night before.
