A FURIOUS axe-man attacked his neighbour after becoming enraged by a series of insults about his mother.

The attacker, in his 40s, reportedly swung at his 24-year-old neighbour’s head after the pair began arguing in Las Monjas.

The young man was left a slashed head and broken wrist and had to be rushed to the Axarquia General Hospital.

His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Police were called to the incident and the axe-man was arrested at his home.

According to reports, the two families have a long-standing rivalry, with the two men having been separated after fighting previously.
In this latest flare-up, it was reportedly a series of mother-related insults which triggered the violent attack.
