Amber Alert issued for 7-year-old Tulsa girl

Ahmad told police she bound them with tape to restrain them and, when her 11-year-old daughter got free, she admitted to stabbing her 50-70 times, hitting her in the head with a pick axe, and then setting the house on fire.

Police found 39-year-old Taheerah Ahmad and the 7-year-old girl in downtown Tulsa less than 24 hours after going missing and after a disturbing series of events. The previous night, Ahmad allegedly tied her three daughters up and stuck socks in their mouths before repeatedly stabbing the 11-year-old.

The 11-year-old remained hospitalized Tuesday and police said she was unconscious and that her condition was "very severe".

"History, which we encountered, was that seven year old child helped 9-year-old to run away from home", he told reporters on Monday, a police spokesman.

One of Ahmad's kids a 9-year-old escaped to a relative's house and recounted the gruesome details to police. Police issued an Amber Alert for the missing 7-year-old.

MacKenzie tells the Tulsa World that when authorities arrived, they found an 11-year-old girl with so many stab wounds that emergency responders "couldn't even count them".

They might be traveling in a black 2005 Lexus RX300 *or* a 2011 Ford Escape. She has curly black hair with gold streaks in it. Hafza is described as having puffy hair in a ponytail and wearing an ankle-length peach dress and painted gold bracelets on her wrist. It was not immediately known what book they were reading, police said.

Cummings says he always felt his daughter was safe when she played over at Ahmad's and is still shocked that the news story rattling his town involves his neighbor.

She also noted the possibility that Ahmad might have mental health and/or drug-related issues.
