Gregory McCallum, the type Brits call a yob, was the neighbor from hell. The 23-year-old McCallum had a history of noisy parties and disputes with neighbors, and the morning after his latest blow-out he wanted revenge against the neighbor he thought had called the police on him the night before.

He armed himself with a knife described as a ‘six-bladed knuckle duster,’ broke into the home of 72 year-old pensioner Frank Corti and attacked him. McCallum made two strategic mistakes: 1) he was still drunk when he invaded Corti’s home, and 2) he didn’t know his enemy.
