Police in a Phoenix suburb are looking for a father suspected of running down his daughter because she was becoming too “Westernized” and was not living according to their traditional Iraqi values.

Police say 48-year-old Faleh Hassan Almaleki of Glendale allegedly ran his daughter down Tuesday at an Arizona Department of Economic Security parking lot in Peoria.

A second woman, 43-year-old Amal Edan Khalaf, also of Surprise, suffered non-life threatening injuries but remains in the hospital. Police say the women are roommates.

Noor Faleh Almaleki lives with Khalaf, police said. Her father was last seen in a gray or silver Jeep Grand Cherokee.

No other details were available late Wednesday.

First, Let’s Meet Our Cast of Ukraine Players

Televised impeachment hearings mattered during Watergate — but they may not today: John Dean associate
