Police arrested a man from Ashdod on Thursday on suspicion of choking his 14-year-old daughter with a belt as she slept in her bed.

Paramedics rushed the girl to the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon, where she is in moderate condition, according to doctors.

Police said the suspect, in a rage due to a prior verbal dispute, entered his daughter’s room after his wife left home for work, and began choking her with the belt.

“We’re looking into the background of this incident, and what proceeded it,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

The teenage girl woke up and attempted to free herself from her father’s grip, but could not succeed, and lost consciousness.

Minutes later, police added, the father called them and reported the incident.

Police dispatched a Magen David Adom crew to the address, which provided first aid before moving her to the hospital.

Rosenfeld said the girl continued to receive medical care at the hospital on Thursday evening.
