PHOENIX — Glendale police are looking for a man accused of being involved in a shooting on the Loop 101 that injured a toddler, authorities said Monday.

The suspect is described as a man between the ages of 30- to 40-years-old with a mustache who was last seen driving a white four-door sedan, the Glendale Police Department said in a press release.

The incident occurred just before 9 p.m. Saturday on Loop 101 southbound near Northern Avenue when a 25-year-old woman was traveling with her 2-year-old daughter and was cut off by another vehicle, authorities said.

The woman got back in front of the vehicle and as the suspect went to pass her again, authorities said the woman heard three gunshots coming from the car as it sped off.

Once she arrived home, authorities said the woman noticed the toddler was bleeding after removing her from the car seat and immediately took her to the hospital.

It was determined the toddler had received a superficial wound from one of the rounds, authorities said.

The girl is expected to make a full recovery, authorities said.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for a potential reward of $1000 or call the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-3000.

No additional information was available.
