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.
Officer MacKenzie said the two younger children had managed to escape and run to a relative's house for help, but that Ahmad had ultimately managed to abduct her youngest child. She is believed to be driving a black 2005 Lexus RX330, with an Oklahoma paper tag, number UD-4967 or a navy blue 2011 Ford Escape with Oklahoma license tag 778MNX.
The 11-year-old girl was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
Police in Oklahoma are searching for a woman who they say bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly, and set their house on fire.
Tulsa police said they have no idea how many times this girl was stabbed because of the multiple cuts on the young girl.
Ahmad reportedly stabbed the 11-year-old girl multiple times. Authorities found the pair after someone nearby saw them and called the police. It's unclear how the incident began.
The 9-year-old child told police the girls' mother had duct taped their hands and stuffed their mouths with socks before stabbing her sister.
Police said Tuesday that the 11-year-old is unconscious and is breathing with the help of a tube.
Someday after the 2 youngsters have been capable of escape, Ahmad is believed to have snatched her 7-year-old daughter, Hafsa Hayle - who additionally goes by Hafsa Hussein - and fled the scene.
According to News on 6, Hafsa was wearing an ankle-length peach dress and wore her hair in a puffy ponytail.
Both Ahmad and her daughter were safe when Tulsa police found her on Tuesday, according to Tulsa World. The mother, Taheerah is described as curly black hair with gold streaks in it.
Police said there was no history of child abuse in the household.
