BROKEN ARROW – Authorities arrested a man Saturday accused of kicking his 9-year-old daughter in the lower back.
Richard Lee Howe, 48, is being held on complaints of injury to a minor child as well as assault and battery in the presence of a minor child, jail records show.
Howe’s wife told Broken Arrow police officers that he assaulted her and their 9-year-old daughter in front of their 11-year-old daughter, according to the arrest report.
Officers noted the girl had a red mark on her back and near her waistline that was consistent with being kicked.
Howe, who had left the scene before police arrived, returned to the home and was arrested around 5:15 p.m.
He was booked into the Tulsa Jail on Sunday.
