Father arrested for abuse after burqa teen's injuries exposed
by Sam Boyer
The father of a 15-year-old Muslim teenager has been arrested after allegedly beating and detaining her, and forcing her to hide her facial injuries beneath a burqa.
It is alleged he broke his daughter's nose with an umbrella, broke her teeth with a stick in a separate incident, and locked her in the house by nailing a door shut.
The man's partner was also arrested yesterday, when police and the armed offenders squad swooped on the family's Auckland home.
