Police arrested a 40-year old Palestinian after a video shows him torturing his baby daughter.
Rabat – The video went viral on social media with many venting their anger and denouncing the behavior of the Palestinian with his baby girl.
The video caught the attention of Saudi police who launched an investigation to identify the man. Saudi Gazette reported on Sunday that Saudi security services had arrested the Palestinian man.
A police spokesman said that “the man, a Palestinian national in his 40s, has been identified as the culprit and he was arrested from the Casablanca neighborhood, south of the Riyadh city. We will provide necessary care to his four children, in coordination with the concerned authorities.”
In an attempt to justify his action, the Palestinian man claimed that his wife left him and his children for two weeks, without them knowing where she could be.
He said that the mother used the video against him.
“I would like to apologize [for the act].” He said the motive was to teach my daughter how to walk.
“Look at her now, she knows how to walk alone,” he added.
He claimed that he has been taking care of his four children by himself for more than two weeks. “Their mother left them and they are not subject to any violence.”
