Girl found stabbed in burning house, another child missing

Girl found stabbed in burning house, another child missing

Taheera Ahmad is accused of binding and gagging her three girls, before slashing the eldest multiple times with a knife, then setting the house on fire and kidnapping the youngest, who is seven.

Ahmad reportedly then set the house on fire and left the 11-year-old there with her stab wounds, taking the youngest daughter with her.

"The story that we received was that the 7-year-old helped the 9-year-old escape the residence", a Tulsa police spokesperson told reporters.

A third child, a 9 year old was able to escape and run to a neighbor's home.

Police were called to a home around 7:30 last night on reports that a child was possibly stabbed and another one was missing.

An Amber Alert has been issued for a 7 year old girl Hafza Hailey, who is considered to be in serious danger.

Police believe Hafza Hailey is with her biological mother, Taheerah Ahmad, 39. The middle child, meanwhile, found extended family at a home close by.

The injured girl remains in a critical condition in hospital and authorities say she was stabbed so many times they were unable to count the exact number of wounds. MacKenzie said there was no known history of child abuse or domestic violence. Her 7-year-old daughter who was missing with her was also found safe. A house burns near Casitas Pass Road as the Thomas Fire continues to grow on December 10, 2017 near Carpinteria, California.

It was unclear of where Ahmad may be headed, but authorities noted that she has lived in Tennessee and Texas in the past. Ahmad was taken in for questioning. They were found in downtown Tulsa. Her condition was "very severe" and she was intubated, according to police.
