The family of Ted Cruz is asking for privacy after police and emergency personnel rushed to the Texas senator's home on December 6 due to a call regarding a teenage girl reportedly suffering from "self-inflicted" cuts.

According to reports from Houston police, the 14-year-old girl was injured by self-inflicted stab wounds on her arms at Cruz's residence in River Oaks, Texas.

The senator has two daughters aged 14 and 11, however, police have not confirmed the identity of the girl as being a member of Cruz's family.
