A father was arrested while he was trying to flee from his home town after slitting his daughter’s throat.

The 41-year-old man who was identified as Joi, has been arrested in Phatthalung, Thailand, for inflicting serious injuries on his 13-year-old daughter.

The incident occurred after an argument broke out between Joi and his daughter over the amount of time she was spending on Facebook and other social media platforms.

In anger, the father cut his daughter’s throat and locked her room before fleeing with his younger daughter. However, his wife rescued the girl and called for help.

The girl was rushed to a hospital for treatment and she is expected to survive.

Joi was arrested at a checkpoint in Prachuap Khiri Khan.

Joi’s 44-year-old wife said that her husband did not like the fact that their daughter was spending so much time on social networks for fear that it would effect her schoolwork.

She added that her husband had been violent and he had beaten the girl before over her social media use.

Joi is facing a number of charges.
