A valley teen is recovering after being tied up and beaten.  The Fresno County District Attorney says her own father, mother and brother are responsible.

Witnesses tell Reedley Police the girl’s family became enraged after finding out she was dating a boy who was not Muslim.

Investigators say the 16–year–old sent a friend a text message begging for help saying she was afraid she would die in the hands of family if police didn’t get there soon.

That cry for help led Reedley Police to a home on west Lilac on June 25th.

“I responded to the residence of the victim and when the door was opened, the victim ran past the father and mother and out the door,” Officer Ray Camacho said in his report.
