OKLAHOMA CITY- Witnesses came to the aid of a little girl being beaten inside a local restaurant Tuesday afternoon.

A man believed to be the girls’ grandfather, 62-year-old Che Weise, was arrested on a child abuse complaint.

Police and paramedics were called to the China Wok Restaurant, near S.W. 89th St. and Western Ave.

Witnesses said they watched the suspect get violent with the little girl and felt compelled to step in.

Cody Nelson said, “He started disciplining his granddaughter, picked her up, chucked her up against the wall. Her head hit the wall and I just walked over there. He put his hand over her mouth and started hitting her with a shoe and I stepped in and told him enough’s enough and told him he wasn’t going to go anywhere and that if he tried to leave I’d do a citizen’s arrest.”

The little girl was taken to the hospital to get checked out but appeared to be okay.
