ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Police in Virginia say the ambassador of Equatorial Guinea is suspected of beating his daughter with a wooden chair leg but won't be arrested because he has diplomatic immunity.

Police were called to the diplomatic residence Monday night. Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck says the girl sustained a "significant laceration" to her head, bruises and a swollen eye. She was taken to Virginia Hospital Center.

The diplomatic residence in the Washington suburb of Arlington, Virginia, is the home of Ambassador Ruben Maye Nsue Mangue. The news site ARLNow.com first reported the incident.

Police were called to the home previously in December 2013.

A person who answered the telephone at the Embassy of Equatorial Guinea declined to discuss the incident Wednesday. But she said a girl had been taken to the hospital.
