Reason: The father had learned on his birthday that his daughter had a boyfriend - from his point of view the "wrong one".
Early this morning, a 44-year-old Egyptian was arrested for the attempted murder of his 14-year-old daughter in the city of Hamburg. The investigation is being led by the homicide department. According to investigations to date, the 44-year-old learned on Friday that his daughter has a boyfriend. In this regard, he confronted his daughter in the evening and there was an argument. In the course of the dispute, the man struck the victim massively and strangled her to unconsciousness. The 14-year-old finally managed to escape from the apartment. She informed friends, who in turn alerted the police and emergency services. She was found seriously injured at Billstedt bus station and was immediately transported to a hospital. After medical care, the victim was also examined in hospital by a medical examiner. The injuries suffered were classified by the latter as acutely life-threatening at the time of the violence. Homicide took over the investigation. The public prosecutor's office in Hamburg applied for a search warrant and an arrest warrant against the father. After a judicial hearing in the hospital, the investigating judge issued an arrest warrant for attempted murder. The warrant was executed early Sunday morning. The 44-year-old suspect was taken to the remand centre. Evidence was found and seized during the house search.
