OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man was arrested for allegedly hitting a teen girl in the head with a belt.

On May 11th, around 3:30 a.m., police were called to reports of a domestic disturbance in the 9200 block of N. Council.

When officers arrived, they found a 14-year-old girl with a knot on her head.
