A father has been arrested after footage was shared on social media showing him slapping his baby daughter around the face because she couldn’t stand on her own  The vile clip also shows him dangling the tot by her arms and holding her by her ears before dropping her to the ground in a cruel attempt to make her stand up unaided, despite her young age  The man has been identified as Yousif Alqutai, in his 40s, who has since pleaded for forgiveness and insisted the video was filmed four years ago  He added: “As you can all see now she is perfectly fine. I tried to teach her to walk and now look by the grace of God she walks by herself ”  But he has been condemned after the footage resurfaced on social media at the weekend, with police arresting him   The Saudi Arabia resident’s family has also since disowned him, according to local media    Family member Zuhair Alqutai told a radio station that Alqutai filmed it when he was unemployed in a bid to “manipulate people into helping him find work”    However, the harrowing video shows him grabbing his daughter by the neck and shouting at her When the youngster falls, he slaps her on her back, face and stomach.  Lebanese actress Nadine Nassib Njeim retweeted a post which said: “Children Protection Associations need to intervene urgently for sure!  “But honestly this toddler is damaged in a way or another!   “The way he hit her on the head I can’t take her out of my head!   “What is happening to humanity? It’s insane!”  Police were reportedly alerted to the viral video before they identified and detained the father   A force spokesperson said: “The man, a Palestinian national in his 40s, has been identified as the culprit and he was arrested from the Casablanca neighborhood, south of Riyadh city,” according to the  Saudi Gazette  The officer added that the Saudi police would “provide necessary care to his four children”    In the apology video, Alqutai blamed his wife – and mother of his four children – for abuse which caused him psychological damage  “Their mother left all four of our children with me and it has been difficult – as you can see in front of you there’s nothing wrong with them I urge you all to pray for me instead of praying against me,” he said in a now deleted tweet
