SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say they are searching for a man suspected of shooting fireworks at vehicles, including a deputy’s patrol truck, southeast of Phoenix.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reported Saturday (https://bit.ly/1NilaBJ) that the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office was seeking the public’s help in finding the suspect.

Officials say they believe he’s in his 20s, and that he was last seen riding a motorized bicycle in San Tan Valley, a city at the southeast edge of the Phoenix metro area.

According to sheriff’s officials, the man fired off a firework at a sheriff’s patrol truck Thursday night as a deputy was responding reports of fireworks being shot at vehicles.

The deputy reported hearing an explosion and seeing a bright flash at the truck’s passenger-side window. He wasn’t injured and the vehicle was not damaged.
