Police on Saturday arrested a 28-year-old man accused of striking and injuring a 76-year-old man in the midst of an argument between the two over the use of a public park in Herzliya.

The victim allegedly complained to the suspect and his acquaintance that their dog was unleashed in the park and he requested that they remove the animal.

The argument eventually became physical, and the victim and suspect began fighting each other. During the clash, the suspect hit the victim, causing him an injury to his leg.

The victim was evacuated to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba.

The suspect was scheduled to face a remand hearing at Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court on Sunday.
