A young man who stabbed his grandparents overnight on Sunday in Bat Yam turned himself in to police on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old, who had reportedly argued with his grandfather prior to the stabbing at the nursing home in which his grandparents reside, fled the scene following the incident.

He was due to appear at Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

The man's grandfather was fairly seriously hurt in the attack, and the grandmother sustained only light injuries.
