Glendale man sought in hit-run of daughter; motive unknown
by Christina O'Haver
Police are looking for a Glendale man suspected of hitting and injuring two pedestrians, including his own daughter, with a car in a Peoria parking lot Tuesday. Police said the suspect, of Iraqi descent, may have run down his daughter because he believed she was becoming too Westernized.
At about 2:05 p.m., police officers and firefighters responded to a report of a vehicle striking a pedestrian in the parking lot of a state Department of Economic Security office near 91st and Peoria avenues, said Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef.
Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, is suspected of running down his daughter and a friend in a grey or silver 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Arizona license plate ADS-9192, Tellef said.
