Amber Alert issued for 7-year-old Tulsa girl

Tulsa police announced early Tuesday afternoon that Taheerah Ahmad was arrested, almost 18 hours after she fled her home with her 7-year-old daughter, Hasfa Hayle - who also goes by Hafsa Hussein.

According to News on 6, Hafsa was wearing an ankle-length peach dress and wore her hair in a puffy ponytail.

Police were looking for Taheerah Ahmad and her 7-year-old daughter, and they issued the Amber alert because they believed the daughter was in danger.

According to tweets from Tulsa police, the department believes Ahmad took Hafza in a black 2005 Lexus RX300 SUV crossover, which they say might have paper plates.

Police believe after Ahmad stabbed the 11-year-old several times, she set fire to the house, then abducted Hafza.

The mother and daughter were last seen on Monday (May 14) night in the 500 block of Mohawk Boulevard in Tulsa.

The 11-year-old girl was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

The middle child told police that their mother placed socks in their mouths, bound their hands with duct tape and began stabbing the eldest child, MacKenzie said.

A third child, a 9-year-old girl, was also in the home when it happened.

By the time police arrived at the home, Ahmad had already fled with her youngest daughter.

It was unclear of where Ahmad may be headed, but authorities noted that she has lived in Tennessee and Texas in the past.

The 9-year-old told police that Hafza helped her escape to a relative's house just a few doors down in the north Tulsa neighborhood before their mother took off with Hafza.

Ahmad has curly black hair with gold highlights.
