Lee Soon Heng, 53, was jailed for three years on 23 May for assaulting Madam Goh Kim Kee, 69, with a wooden pole which broke several of her bones on Oct 22 last year.

Madam Goh lives a floor above Lee in a HDB flat at Kim Tian Road.

The victim had to be hospitalised for almost two months after the attack.

Lee had planned the attack in Aug in retaliation against Madam Goh for having dragging chairs and speaking loudly.

He ambushed her with a 1.4m-long wooden pole which he had found at the void deck.

As she walked past the corner at the void deck where he was hiding, he struck her repeatedly on the head and upper body.

As she passed out, two residents came to her aid and stopped Lee.

According to the Straits Times, Lee was diagnosed with depressive disorder with psychosis, a contributory factor in the attack, which caused him to be impulsive and react to unpleasant provocations.

This was considered in his sentencing, of which he could have been jailed for 10 years and/or fined. Lee cannot be caned due to his age.
