Qld neighbourhood war ends in stabbing

A Gold Coast man has been stabbed in the stomach after a long-running dispute with his neighbour erupted in violence.

The men, who live opposite each other at a Miami unit complex, got into a physical fight on Tuesday afternoon.

One of the men, 51, then retrieved a knife and used it to stab his neighbour in the abdomen, police say.

The victim, 54, was taken to hospital but his injuries are not considered life threatening.

Police say there's a history of tension between the pair, describing their relationship as volatile, but they are still to determine exactly what sparked the incident.

Officers arrested the alleged attacker at the complex.

He will face the Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday, charged with one count of acts intending to maim, disfigure or disable.
