Police are looking for a 29-year-old man who is believed to have punched a 2-year-old before stabbing someone in Jordan.

Police say Jared Richard Valinski does not have a permanent address, but is believed to be staying with friends in Chaska or Shakopee.

Officers were called to the 100 block of West 3rd Street around 11 p.m. Monday, where they learned an altercation had taken place.

According to witnesses, Valinski punched a 2-year-old child in the face then pulled out a knife and attacked a man.

Police say the incident was not immediately reported so Valinski had left the scene by the time they got there.

Valinski's relationship to the child is unclear.

Anyone with information on Valinski's whereabouts is asked to call the Jordan Police Department at 952-492-2009.
