A 36-year-old Florida man allegedly beat and strangled his grandparents over the weekend, leading to his arrest.

Police say Scott Horn violently attacked his grandparents around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday at their home on 20th Street.

When police arrived, Horn fled. The grandparents were rushed to the hospital; Horn’s grandmother suffered the worst injuries, with six broken ribs and a broken sternum, deputies told WESH.
