Muslim Father Arrested for Running Over 'Westernized' Daughter
by Sarah Netter
A 10-day manhunt ended when police arrested an Iraqi immigrant accused of running over his 20-year-old daughter to punish her for becoming "too Westernized" and rebuffing the conservative ways he valued.
Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, fled from Peoria, Ariz., on Oct. 20. He was arrested by U.S. marshalls in Atlanta when he arrived at the airport there, according to the Associated Press.
His daugher Noor Faleh Almaleki, 20, remains hospitalized in critical condition after her father hit the young woman and her boyfriend's mother with his Jeep Cherokee on Oct. 20 in the parking lot of the Department of Economic Development in Peoria.
Noor Faleh Almaleki is in "life-threatening condition," Peoria Police spokesman Mike Tellef told ABCNews.com last week soon after the incident.
