BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Boardman man was arrested after his daughter told police that he hit her in the head with a bottle.
Police said the fight happened after an argument on Monday afternoon. The police and fire department, as well as an ambulance, were sent to a home on Paxton Road.
Police said the victim’s shirt was covered in blood, and she had a cut on her back, believed to be caused by a broken bottle. She told police her father, Kevin Moore, also punched her several times in the head.
Moore admitted to hitting his daughter, according to a police report, and said the fight was over food. He said his daughter was “being disrespectful,” so he hit her in the head with a liquor bottle, according to the report.

Moore was arrested and charged with felonious assault and domestic violence. He appeared in court Tuesday, and bond was set at $30,000.
