Police were called to Sen. Ted Cruz’s home after police received a call about a teenage girl with self-inflicted cuts.
Cruz has two daughters one of them who is suspected to be the one to cut herself, reportedly announced she was bi-sexual earlier this year.
Many media outlets have suspected that the self-inflicted wounds were from an attempted suicide attempt by Cruz’s 14-year-old daughter.
Cruz has announced he wishes to have privacy at this time and gave no further details regarding the incident.

Hoping Ted Cruz' daughter is ok. She came out as bi earlier this year and while no one knows specifically why she engaged in self-harm, it's important to note that bisexual youth are at disproportionate risk of suicide attempts with 27% attempting it. https://t.co/BRUdZKNprv pic.twitter.com/AS79zT90rp

Yahoo News shared these details:
Police and medical personnel were called to the Texas home of Sen. Ted Cruz Tuesday night after reports of a 14-year-old girl at the property suffering from self-inflicted stab wounds to her arms.
The teen was taken to the hospital shortly after. It’s unclear who the girl was—though Cruz does have two daughters: Catherine, 11, and Caroline, 14.
In a response to The Daily Beast, a representative for his office said: “This is a family matter, and thankfully their daughter is OK.”
There “were no serious injuries,” the representative said.
“The family requests that the media respect their daughter’s privacy at this time.”
