SALT LAKE CITY — A man who caused "permanent disfigurement" to his sister by beating her with a cord, according to prosecutors, was charged Tuesday.

Yassine Adam Ibrahim, 22, of Salt Lake City, was charged in 3rd District Court with child abuse, a second-degree felony.

On March 26, a 16-year-old girl was watching TV on a couch when her brother, Ibrahim, "came in and started hitting her with a long cord," according to charging documents, "The cord was folded twice in a loop like a jump rope."

The girl tried to get away, but Ibrahim followed while hitting her arms, legs and back, the charges state.

"(The girl) has marks all over her body and some of them bled," according to the charges.

A doctor determined the girl "would suffer permanent disfigurement" from the injuries, the charges state.

A $100,000 warrant was issued for Ibrahim's arrest.
