UPDATE -- The DA's office has just announced that Allen Shields will be held without bond.

For the first time, we hear from a frightened little girl who called 911 fearing for her and her mother’s lives.  The call was made Monday, leading police to the 5000 block of North Utica Place.  That is where they say a man kidnapped and assaulted his ex-girlfriend and her daughter.  Now prosecutors are trying to keep the suspect from bonding out of jail.  Fox 23’s Douglas Clark has the latest.

The little girl and her mother were inside their house, their lives being threatened, police say, by the mother’s ex-boyfriend.  There is still broken glass on the front porch where police kicked in the door and arrested the suspect, Allen Shields.  They were led here by the little girl’s frightened call to 911.

Dispatch: Police emergency?
Caller: Somebody is trying to kill my Momma.  Please hurry.
Dispatch: Who is trying to kill your mom?  If you’re in your room, you can tell me.
Caller: My mom’s ex-boyfriend.
Dispatch: Your mom’s boyfriend?
Caller: Ex-boyfriend.
Dispatch: Ex-boyfriend?  What’s his name?
Caller: Allen Shields.
Dispatch: What’s his name?
Caller: Allen Shields.
Dispatch: Allen Shields?
Caller: Mm-hmm.

Hiding inside the bathroom, the 9-year old girl identifies her and her mother’s aggressor as 33-year-old Allen Shields.  Police say Shields was hiding in the laundry room of his ex-girlfriend’s house in North Tulsa, waiting for them to return home.  He then ambushed her, sprayed her with pepper spray, and threatened her life at gunpoint.

Listening to the struggle from the bathroom, the victim’s daughter quietly told the 911 operator she was afraid to leave the room.

Dispatch: I have police officers there but they can’t get to the door.
Caller: Break the door open.
Dispatch: They can’t do that without seeing anybody.  Is there any way you can go to the door?
Caller: I can’t because he’ll try to kill me.
Dispatch: He’s got what?
Caller: He’s going to try to kill me.
Dispatch: Okay.  Is your mommy home?
Caller: Yes.
Dispatch: Does he have any guns or knives we need to worry about?
Caller: No, he’s going to kill her.

As police arrived, the operator was still on the phone with the little girl.

Dispatch: They’re kicking in the door.  I want you to stay in the bathroom, okay?  Stay on the phone with me, okay?
Caller: Okay.

Once inside, police found handcuffs, a can of pepper spray, a filter mask, cold tablets, and a semi-automatic handgun.

Allen Shields is still in the Tulsa County Jail under $1.25 million bond.

But prosecutors have filed a motion to have him held under no bond, meaning he would have to stay in jail.  A hearing is scheduled for Friday

Shields is also being tied to the murder of businessman Neal Sweeney.  Sweeney was gunned down at his office in September 2008.  The killer was caught and confessed to the crime.  But during a hearing, a witness named Allen Shields' brother Fred.  As a result, police say Allen is a person of interest in the Sweeney case, believing he has knowledge of the murder.

Police also call Allen Shields a person of interest in the disappearance of ex-girlfriend Angie Tucker.  But no charges have been filed against shields in either case.
