A tailor from the capital’s Chbar Ampov district was hospitalised after a fight with his neighbour.
Police said the tailor’s mobile phone was stolen a few days earlier when drinking beer with fellow villagers at his house.
The disappearance provoked an argument with a guest, during which the tailor warned the villager to stay away from his house, slapping him in the face.
The villager left, allegedly returning with a wooden stick and a knife, and seriously injured him in the attack. Villagers arrested the suspect and sent him to the police station.
