He spoke with a neighbor who lived next door to Akbar.
“You just never know what people are going through,” the neighbor said, asking not to be identified. “It’s a little weird and crazy, but her daughter was at my house a couple of days ago.”
Police say Akbar assaulted her 5-year-old daughter. According to an arrest warrant, the girl had “bruising throughout her body” and “visible injuries to her neck.”
“She’s an innocent child. I have a little boy. A child is innocent,” the neighbor said.
The girl later died at Kennestone Hospital.
Police towed away a Toyota Camry with Alabama license plates. Neighbors told Jose the car belonged to the girl’s mother.
Akbar is currently in the Cobb County Jail with no bond.
