Teenager at Sen. Ted Cruz’s home hospitalized after ‘self-inflicted cuts’ emergency call

Police and emergency personnel responded Tuesday night to Sen. Ted Cruz’s Houston home after receiving a call from a teenage girl injured with “self-inflicted” cuts, according to local reports.

A 14-year-old girl allegedly suffered self-inflicted stab wounds to the arms at the Republican residence in the River Oaks neighborhood, Houston police told ABC13 and KHOU 11.

Officers received the call just before 8 p.m. local time.

The teenager was rushed to hospital and is expected to be fine.

Police could not confirm if the girl was a member of Cruz’s family.

The Republican lawmaker has two daughters, ages 14 and 11.

ABC13 reporters spotted police in the front yard of his home on Tuesday evening.

A spokesperson for Cruz asked for his daughter’s privacy when contacted for comment by the station.

“It’s a family affair and luckily their daughter is doing well,” the rep told the outlet. “There were no serious injuries.”
