Nobody has been charged over last night’s deadly neighbourhood dispute in Glenmore Park, as more details emerge about the incident.

Police are investigating just how a 44-year-old man died after an altercation in a home on Jarra Crescent around 10pm last night.

There are suggestions the man may have died from a heart attack, with an autopsy to be conducted in the coming days.

It has been revealed that Mick Simpson, 44, was injured in the incident after being allegedly struck with a metal pole. 

The man who allegedly swung the pole died.

“He was on the ground and they were fighting when it happened, I don’t know how (he died),” Mr Simpson’s girlfriend, Adra Biscossi, told The Daily Mail.

“Mick was just trying to defend himself. We tried to get him (the neighbour) out and I called police straight away.”

There are unconfirmed reports the dispute related to an incident involving children.

The mother-in-law of the man who died has told The Daily Telegraph the disagreement had started earlier in the day, and continued when her daughter went to the home where the death later occurred. 

“She was there to pick up a friend (who lives) up the road’s child because all of the kids play together, and he’s just come out and started abusing her,” the woman, who did not want to be named, said. 

The woman then returned to her home on Jarra Crescent, before telling her partner what happened.

“He went there to see what all the fuss was about, and then the next thing you know, they were arguing and (my son-in-law) was gone,” the mother-in-law claimed.

Paramedics treated the man who died but he could not be saved.

Officers from Nepean Police Area Command have established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.
