"He went to his neighbor's apartment, from where the loud noise came from, and knocked on the door. The suspect was asked by his tired neighbor to keep the noise down. The suspect did not like the request," a police spokesman said.

"The suspect picked up a handgun, threatened his neighbor with it, and hit him over the head. The injured man required medical attention," the spokesman added.

The stunned neighbor fled the hallway and called police.

The assault suspect has no prior record of attacks. During questioning, he denied the suspicions against him.
