Amber Alert Issued for Oklahoma Girl Considered to Be in Considerable Danger

She formally lived in Tennessee and Texas.

Ahmad now is being held in the Tulsa County jail without bond on assault and battery with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, first-degree arson and child neglect complaints, jail records show. Law enforcement arrived and found the kitchen in flames and the 11-year-old girl with multiple stab wounds. Authorities found the pair after someone nearby saw them and called the police.

During the course of restraining her daughters, the 11-year-old fought back, which prompted Ahmad to stab the girl an estimated "50 to 60 times" in self-defense and strike her over the head with a pickaxe before then trying to set the home on fire, Tuell said. However, they did say Ahmad may have suffered from substance abuse or mental health issues, according to ABC News. Police have issued an Amber Alert for the missing young girl, urging anyone who sees her to call 911 immediately.

Around 6:40 p.m. Monday, police say 39-year-old Taheerah Ahmad tied up three of her children, an 11-year-old girl, a 9-year-old girl and a 7-year-old girl.

However, police believe she could also be driving a navy blue Ford sedan, but there is no year or tag information for the vehicle.

His decision comes on the heels of similar retirements by fellow greats Cooper Cronk and Johnathan Thurston late previous year . In that period he has missed just one game - the series opener in 2010 due to injury - and won a record 26 matches.

"The mother had duct-taped their hands, put socks in their mouths and began stabbing the 11-year-old", said Tulsa Police Officer Jeanne MacKenzie.

Sometime after the two children were able to escape, Ahmad is believed to have snatched her 7-year-old daughter and fled the scene.

The 11-year-old was taken to a local hospital and was listed in critical condition, according to the spokesperson, who said the child "was stabbed so many times that the officers" couldn't count the number of wounds.

Investigators say the 7-year-old girl helped the 9-year-old girl escape.
