(Meredith)– Police said a couple assaulted their 16-year-old daughter when she chose not to wed an older man, leading her to flee from her south Texas house.
Maarib Al Hishmawi was reported missing on Jan. 30 and found safe in mid-March, when a company took her in and cared for her.
The teen told authorities she escaped her moms and dads, who presumably put hot cooking oil on her body and beat her with a broomstick because she objected to the set up marriage.
” At one point, she was choked practically to the point of unconsciousness,” said Bexar County Constable Javier Salazar on Friday. “This young lady, at numerous times over that time period went through some pretty bad abuse due to the fact that she didn’t wish to be married to this individual.”
Apparently, the parents were to get $20,000 for the arranged wedding.
San Antonio Express-News. Authorities said it’s most likely that the guy who was organized to be married to the teen will also be facing charges. Maarib and her five younger siblings have actually been positioned with Child Protective Solutions. It’s unidentified if the other kids had been abused.
The family is from Iraq and has been in the U.S. for 2 years, authorities said.
