Parents choked, beat up, poured hot cooking oil on daughter, 16

Texas girl’s parents drenched her in hot oil for refusing arranged marriage cops

The teenager has since been found alive.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said on Friday: "This young lady, at various times over that time period was subjected to some pretty bad abuse because she didn't want to be married to this person".

At some point in mid-2017, a marriage arrangement was made between Maarib's family and an adult man living in another city.

The teen was reported missing January 30 after she was last seen leaving Taft High School. She was located in mid-March when she was taken in by an organization that cared for her after she ran away, KSAT reported.

Reports indicate the parents meant to receive $20,000 from that man as part of the arranged marriage. According to authorities the parents beat her with broomsticks and poured hot oil on her. She was also hit with broomsticks, and choked to the point of unconscious at least once.

"I believe it was the female suspect, the mother, that at one point actually threw hot cooking oil on her because she was refusing to take part in this marriage", he said, making it clear that the father was also involved in the physical abuse.


Texas resident, Maarib Al Hishmawi, 15, was beaten by her parents after her refusal to agree to an arranged marriage.

The Al Hishmawi couple, 34-year-old Abdulah Fahmi and his wife Hamdiyah Saha, were arrested Friday and charged with continuous family violence. The FBI is investigating the case.

BCSO Assistant Chief Deputy Ronald Bennett previously said Al Hishmawi was physically abused by someone she knew.

Details about the man who she was to marry have not been released.

Investigators searched the Al Hishmawi home but Salazar did not reveal what was found. Authorities, who speculated that she returned to the Middle East, called on the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help them navigate language and cultural barriers surrounding the young girl's disappearance.
