The Glendale man accused of running down his daughter for being too “westernized” was taken into custody Thursday night, police confirmed.

Faleh Almaleki, 48, was in custody in Georgia, Peoria police spokesman

Mike Tellef said late Thursday.

Jim Joyner, a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service in Atlanta, said Almaleki was arrested Thursday when he arrived at Atlanta’s airport


Police believe Almaleki ran over his daughter, Noor Almaleki, 20, and Amal Edan Khalaf, 43, in a Peoria parking lot on Oct. 20 because he felt his daughter had disrespected the family.

Khalaf is reportedly the mother of Noor’s boyfriend.

The two women were still in the hospital, with Noor Almaleki in “life-threatening” condition and Khalaf’s condition improving, when police updated their status earlier this week.

Faleh Almaleki had evaded police for more than a week since running over the two women.

Noor’s brother, Peter-Ali Almaleki, said their father called home late last week to check on his daughter’s condition but his wife hung up on him.
