Conflicts between retirees dancing in public areas and surrounding residents complaining about the loud music turned violent Sunday after three dancers were stabbed at a square in Beihai, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Surnamed Li, the 19-year-old assailant reportedly flew into a rage over the music, grabbed a knife at a nearby store and randomly slashed three members of the group.

The victims were sent to a local hospital and Li was apprehended soon after the attack. The man allegedly had a heated argument with his sister earlier that evening.

The attack follows another incident in Wuhan, Hubei Province, where dancers snipped through a 100-meter- long fence so they could dance in a square Saturday.

Property managers blocked off the square after receiving complaints from nearby residents on May 21.

More than 200 have gathered there to dance every night for over a year, said the group organizer surnamed Wu.

Wu and the dancers showed some smooth moves as they eluded guards posted at the square, cut through the fence and got their groove on.
