SAN DIEGO -- Authorities say an elderly San Diego man stabbed his neighbor in a dispute over cats and dogs.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the fight broke out late Friday when the 74-year-old man said his kittens were being harassed by his neighbor's dog.

Investigators say the man then hit his 64-year-old neighbor in the face with a broom stick, returned with a knife and stabbed the other man in the stomach.

Police say the neighbor suffered a swollen lip and a wound to the stomach, but that the injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The 74-year-old man was taken into custody. His name and the identity of his neighbor have not been released.
