Man dies after neighbourhood dispute in Sydney’s west
The girlfriend of a man involved in a neighbourhood dispute in Glenmore Park on Sunday night where another man died has claimed her partner was acting in self-defence.
Just after 10.20pm yesterday emergency services were called to Jarra Crescent, Glenmore Park, after reports of a fight between two men, both 44. One of them died at the scene.
Adra Biscossi told The Daily Telegraph that the alleged incident followed a children's playdate that went sour between neighbours.
Ex-wife neighbour dispute turns deadly
She said that a woman who lives opposite her on Jarra Cres came to collect her de facto partner's son who was playing with her children.
"It was the guy she was seeing's son that was here," Ms Biscossi said.
"That's when (the alleged incident) started."
Ms Biscossi alleged that the man - who later died - then came back across the road armed with a "metal pole" and attacked her own partner Mick while he was in the garage with his back turned.
"Mick was just trying to defend himself, the back of his head's split open … he tried to shut (the altercation) off, he was going 'I'm not talking about it, go away, there's kids inside and you need to go home'. We tried to get (the man who died) out," she said.
"(He) has come into the house, into the garage to pursue (Mick), and it just went on from there."
Ms Biscossi said that the man died on the floor while lying on the floor with her partner.
"I rang the police as soon as it started, when I saw him run into the garage I said 'that's it' and called the police. I've got kids inside."
No charges have been laid over the incident.
