Police say Taheerah Ayesha Ahmad, 39, attempted to kill her 11-year-old daughter, kidnapped her 8-year-old and may have held the two and her other daughter, 9, hostage, without food and water, for a week before she was finally arrested after an Amber alert led two women to phone a tip into to police that saved the girl and ended Ahmad’s siege.

Ahmad is in custody and being held without bond.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. An Amber Alert in Tulsa Monday Led to a Frantic Search For Ahmad & Her 8-Year-Old Daughter Who Police Said Was Kidnapped by Her Mother & Was in Imminent Danger

Monday night, May 14, Tulsa police issued an Amber alert for 8-year-old girl in serious danger and in the company of her child’s mother, Taheerah Ahmad. Ahmad was driving a 2005 Black Lexus RX300. Early Tuesday morning, police provided more details and photos for the public to help in the search.

Police also then said that they’d learned Ahmand had stabbed her 11-year-old daughter repeatedly and then attempted to set their house on fire to ensure the child was dead. There was a new urgency to locate Ahmad and her daughter, Hafsa Hayle, also known as having the surname Hussein.

By 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, police had updated the Amber alert, and had issued a new one: “There have been multiple questions about her car. She once drove a red SUV, but that car is no longer in her possession. The Black 2005 Lexus is the most recent vehicle that she owned and was seen in,” Tulsa police said.

“Through the course of forensic interviews it was discovered that she could also be in a Blue Ford Sedan, unfortunately we don’t have any more details about that car,” police said.

An hour later, police issued images of Ahmad with blond hair because, they said, “we believe that this is her current hair color.”

And police also told the public that Ahmad’s 11-year-old daughter was fighting for her life in the hospital.


2. Two Women, One a Mother, Called 911 When They Found Ahmad & Her Daughter in a Tulsa Parking Lot

Police also told the public that if they drove a similar vehicle and were pulled over to please understand and be patient as the search for Ahmad was at a flash-point; police and citizens were now fraught with worry that Hasfa could be, based on what they say Ahmad did to her other child, in imminent deadly danger. The updates were coming at a clip by then.

Then, the news the whole city was waiting for, she’d been located. Shortly after noon, two citizens, Anastasia Brazendeh and Emily Wilson, saw the car and could see Hasfa inside in car, in the front seat seemingly alone until the women got closer to the vehicle and saw Ahmad asleep in the rear seats.

They called 911 and Tulsa Police Officer Jonella Griffith was the first on the scene.

By 12:30, Ahmad was arrested and in police custody and her daughter, with a pink hat and dress, was safe and in the custody of authorities.

Police praised the women that called 911.

“Big thanks to Anastasia and Emily for seeing the suspect’s vehicle and calling 911. Emily, a mother herself, had been concerned about the child and noticed a car matching the description …”

“Thanks again for caring enough to take the time to help in this tragic situation,” Tulsa police wrote


3. Police Say Ahmad Stabbed Her Daughter 50 to 70 Times, Struck Her Head With a Pickaxe, & Tried to Burn Down the House to Ensure the Child Was Dead & Fled With Her 8-Year-Old Daughter. Police said Ahmad Claimed She Attacked Her Daughter in ‘Self Defense’

Police and media reports detail what is believed to have occurred in the Mohawk Boulevard house: Ahmad allegedly bound and gagged two of her three daughters Monday night. Hasfa, 8, helped her sister, 9, escape when, police said, Ahmad began attacking and stabbing her oldest daughter, 11. The 9-year-old, police said, contacted family.

“While Ahmad was restraining her daughters, the 11-year-old fought back, which prompted Ahmad to stab the girl an estimated ’50 to 70 times’ and strike her over the head several times with a pick-axe before then trying to set the home on fire,” according to reports.

The report also says Ahmad wanted to burn down the residence to “further ensure that (the 11-year-old) was dead.” The 11-year-old, according to police, had dozens of stab wounds to the torso along with puncture wounds to her legs, neck, hands and face when she was found.

The child was described as in “very serious” condition as of Wednesday morning. Police said she was unconscious and intubated.

It was reported that one of the daughters told investigators that Ahmad had held them all hostage for the past week while withholding food and water from them. The child also said their mother often threatened to stab them if they ever attempted to leave their bedrooms without permission.

Ahmad, in a police report, was described as being “very upset” with the 8-year-old. She also was accused of calling one daughter the devil and expressing hatred for another.

Authorities said her children would be placed in the custody of the Oklahoma state Department of Human Services.

Ahmad, arrested and questioned by Tulsa Police, was handed over to the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office. She was booked into the Tulsa County Jail. Ahmad is facing assault and battery with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, that charge carries no bond. She was also charged with two counts of child abuse, one count of first degree arson. Ahmad claimed her actions against her daughter were done in self-defense, according to reports.

After Ahmad was taken into custody, she reportedly told investigators during interviews that she had become upset “because of the way they were reading and looking at her,” according to a police report.

5. Who is Taheerah Ayesha Ahmad? She’s Known on Facebook as ‘Kashmir Jackson.’

A Facebook profile page she created using the name Kashmir Jackson features a number of provocative self portraits she has taken, many not appropriate for publication. The photos above and immediately below were posted in March of this year.

Ahmad changed her appearance frequently. Police provided these images of Ahmad to the public via its Facebook post culled from her various social media and other locations where her changes in appearance are noticeable.

Friend Naomi Brown, whose family owns the house Ahmad was living in and, Brown said, was preparing to buy, told local media what has happened is out of character for Ahmad.

“I know Tay, and this isn’t Tay. This just isn’t like her. I never thought in a million years she would do this. She might have been a little bit not all there, I guess. But no sign of drugs.”

Additionally, there are a number of cases in Oklahoma where Ahmad is named in requests for protective orders. In some cases, she’s the alleged perpetrator and in at least one, may be an alleged victim requesting a protective order although it appears it was not issued and one where a minor child is named. The case files are not entirely clear.

I’ve known this young lady for most of her life I have just not been around her for the last 15 years of it as the lady stated Above This is not liked a she would not do this she had to have an extreme mental breakdown and extreme mental breakdown dear God I would have never seen this coming she raised two sons and I never seen anything like that with them so I would have never expected that of her with her daughter’s I did not get to know them but I will tell you this woman had a heart she had a big heart they make fun of her smile she always had this little smile on her face and was always very kind and peaceful when she would talk to anybody or reply to them. What probably happened with this lady in my opinion is since I’ve known her for so long I know she has been mentally sexually and physically abused most of her life all I can think would be maybe something snapped in her mind this is purely out of character for her this was a God-fearing woman who believed in the Muslim religion but was by no way radically she was a peaceful human being I cannot believe this I know she’s had to fight all her life against men and the abuse that they put forth on her but I had no idea and nobody did I don’t guess maybe somebody that has been there in the last 15 years would have seen some of this coming I never seen anything like this coming from her she was kind loving and caring mental illness is a very strange thing and people need to get a grip on it and start working with it and quit labeling people as criminals because they’re so mentally ill they don’t know what they’re doing. She probably was seeing demons and things we don’t know what she was saying I know that mental illness runs on her mother’s side of the family as her mother sister is a schizophrenic so we have no idea what brought this on but let’s not be so quick to judge let’s pray for the victims they are all three little girls terrible terrible victims of mental illness and their mother is the one that will fight this battle the worst for when she comes to herself and realizes what has happened I don’t think she will be able to live with herself that is a kind of personality she has and she is tried to kill herself on numerous points when she was a young girl I know this personally God bless these young girls please make a place for them to where they can live a life of normalcy and happiness after this is happened to them let people study this case to where they will understand mental illness and see the signs ahead of time or this may not ever happen to another child again or an adult as she was abused her whole life dear God please help us stop the abuse so that it doesn’t filter down to our younger generation and our children please God this is the most saddest thing I’ve ever seen in my life and I pray for everybody concerned they are all victims all victims of abuse and Mental Illness

Christisn life on the Earth is not that easy ,,we have to self examine ourselves,,very often,,,very carefully,, very very seriously,,,,if we are warned by God ,,, seriously,,

I felt like I was warned by God to read entire Romans ,, ( cautioned ),,🎈
,,(I felt fear ,distress,,felt detached from God,,,or felt like hypocrite,,,)
I read ,,
When I read ,, Romans ,,
Romans 2:9,.,,
It reads ,,
There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil, first for the Jew, then for the Greek;
Berean Literal Bible
tribulation and distress upon every soul of man working evil, both of Jewish first, and also of Greek;
Some translations says human being ,,
Some say ,,
Soul ,,
So it is not clear ,,
If a man will be punished here on the Earth itself for what the wicked he has done ,,
But ,,
It doesn’t make much difference
Either in the world ,
Or
On judgement day ,,,
Because eternal life ,,
Soul is important ,,
But at the same time ,,,
If we tell them ONLY on judgement day a man will be punished ,,he ,,a man,,or we ,, may not fear ,,
But if it is ,,,
here on this world itself physically a man will be suffering ,, for doing wicked ,,evil,
He ,,a man may fear ,,we may fear ,,fear God ,,
It is a courage for us ,,
Because ,,,,
Those who do evil or wicked must know that God will punish.then and there ,,
BUT for a matured Christisn ,,,
He will not mind if it is here on the Earth itself or on the judgement day,,,
Because soul of a man is important,,,
Soul after our physical death is much much important ,,,
Because life here on this Earth,,is very much temporary ,,,not full of joy ,,it is mean ,,
mean,,filthy ,,useless,,
But heaven ,,and assurance for eternal life by Jesus is important,,,
Next ,,
God told me to read Galatians ,,,
There it was a heavy strike on me ,,,
Galatians 2:17,,
But if ,in our endeavor to be justified in Christ,we too were found to be sinners ,is Christ then a servant of sin ? certainly not.
This ,,,here ,,apostle Paul ,,, Worries about Christians who are still in sins ,,
So it was like a heavy blow ,,🔨
Then God took me to James ,,
And then to 1 Peter ,,2 Peter ,,
I was already reading 1 Corinthians 9,onwards,,( this I read myself ,)
A Christian has to examine himself ,,,very carefully,,
Very very carefully,,
God bless you.
God bless you all.
If we don’t have fear ,,
If we don’t depart evil ,,
Then we will be forsaken by the time of Lord’s second coming,,,,
On the wedding day of Jesus,,with us to the church,,
So take my warning ,,
Self examine yourselves ,, ourselves,,, seriously,,,,
God bless you.
GOD BLESS you all.
👥👥👤
Our God speaks,,,,
He is speaking to us ,, through many ways,,
Yes.
Yes.
