Police are searching for a man who allegedly hit his three-year-old daughter with a brick in Brick, NJ. Edward Smith, 25, destroyed the child’s mother’s cellphone and stole her car after the Saturday night incident, and has been on the run since. Authorities believe Smith wasn't intentionally trying to hurt the little girl, who lost a tooth and needed stitches for a cut on her upper lip.

Smith had entered his ex-girlfriend's apartment around 9 p.m. Saturday night, despite the fact she had taken a restraining order out against him. He left, but threw a landscaping brick inside through the sliding glass door, striking the toddler. Smith then went back inside to destroy the cellphone and steal the 1996 Dodge Stratus. He later ditched the car; he's currently wanted for simple assault, burglary, criminal mischief and theft.
