An overprotective father attacked his daughter's ex-boyfriend with a meat cleaver on Sunday, leaving the 21-year-old with serious head injuries.

The young man wanted to speak to his ex (20) at her parents’ home in Vienna’s Donaustadt, but the couple quickly started arguing and the girl’s father got involved, police spokesman Roman Hahslinger told the Austrian Press Agency.

The 54-year-old man then attacked the younger man with a meat cleaver, hitting him on the head just after 3.30pm.

The heavily bleeding 21-year-old was admitted to hospital with serious but not life threatening head injuries. The older man has been arrested.
