Police arrested a man suspected of throwing his 4-year-old nephew out of a third-floor window and stabbing the child’s father in Ramle, in central Israel.

The suspect had fled the scene and was apprehended Friday at the Hatzeva Junction in the Arava region, after police set up checkpoints on the road.

The man’s nephew was in moderate condition at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center near Rishon Letzion as of noon local time.
