A psychologically-deranged Jerusalem man wanted by police for murdering his grandfather was arrested in an Eilat mall late Monday night, police said. The suspected murderer was recognized by passersby who had seen his picture in the newspaper and summoned police. The man, who is in his 20s, is suspected of murdering his grandfather with an ax in his mother's Jerusalem home earlier this month. The man attacked the police officers who came to arrest him at the mall, and police overcame him by force. He was to be brought to a Jerusalem court Tuesday for a remand hearing.
