A Tel Aviv resident was arrested Wednesday after police suspected that he attacked a physician at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon on Tuesday.

The man was visiting his hospitalized grandmother, and saw that her hands had been tied down because she had ripped out her infusion. Her confinement infuriated the man, and he threatened to break her doctor's skull and punched him multiple times.

The suspect also tried to attack police officers who arrived to arrest him and escape, but was arrested and is being held in detention until his trial.
