Man slashes neighbour's throat over loud music

James and his friend
A 42 year old man, Thomas McIntyre slashed his neighbour's throat, 27 year old James Gunn, at his doorstep after complaining that the music from his housewarming party in his home in Glasgow was too loud and was keeping his child awake, according to the Daily Record reports.

The attack happened at James' apartment in October 2014. He had moved to the property just weeks before.
James said he heard a knock very early in the morning at his door, which he answered, he said McIntyre told him ‘the music is too loud... I have been banging down to tell you to shut up’.”

He said he apologized to McIntyre but didn't expect what happened next. He said:
“He swung the knife and I stepped back when I saw it coming towards me. “It got me on the neck from the jugular down the jawline.”
He said he managed to slam the door shut, but then slumped into the arms of a friend.
He said:
“I saw that there was a lot of blood, so I screamed for help. My friend wrapped a shirt around my neck to stop the bleeding.”
Fortunately, James survived the attempted murder, he was rushed to hospital and required a number of stitches including one to repair an artery.

McIntyre went on trial last week accused of attempted murder but he denied the charge, stating he was in bed at the time of the attack. He said he would never complain about his child being kept awake as she could “sleep in a nightclub”.

However, a jury convicted him after five people recognised him as the knifeman who attacked James.
The 42-year-old was remanded in custody and faces a lengthy jail term when he returns to the dock next month for sentencing.

He must really hate this guy. He was just waiting for the slightest opportunity to vent his hatred.

What happened to calling the police to calm things down?

He should face the full force of law

Wicked man

There are just lots of crazy people in disguise looking for the slightest provocation to vent their frustration. We ought to be careful in our relation with supposedly " sane" individuals o .

if this guy happens to live in naija, then he will get tired of slashing throats because noise and loud music seem to be a part of life here. i have four churches seated round my apartment with their loud speakers on, almost every day every night. i have to put my "temper" under strict control, otherwise i would've slashed their throats.
