Florence, July 21 (IANS/AKI) A 26-year-old Italian man has been arrested near the Tuscan city of Florence for physically abusing his grandparents over a 10-year period, police said on Friday.
The man, who lived with his grandparents in the town of Montelupo, was arrested in nearby Capraia e Limite late on Thursday. He had fled the family home earlier on Thursday after hitting his grandmother because she refused to give him money, according to police.
