Southampton Town police on Tuesday asked the public's help identifying a suspect who threw a piece of brick or concrete at the windshield of a passing car on Lake Avenue, in Riverside, injuring a front-seat passenger in the damaged vehicle.

Southampton detectives said the act of reckless endangerment took place June 3, a Sunday, at about 3:45 p.m. as a 2011 Toyota Camry was headed north on Lake Avenue, with a female passenger in the front seat. As a second vehicle, identified as an older green or black sport utility vehicle, approached from the opposite direction, a passenger leaned out of an open window and threw the object at the Camry.

The suspect who threw the brick or concrete was described as a young man with short blond hair.

"The item struck the windshield on the passenger's side of the vehicle, causing the glass to shatter," a Suffolk County Crime Stoppers report said. A female passenger sitting in the Camry's front seat, was injured by the shattered glass and was taken by ambulance for treatment at Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead.

Detectives ask anyone who may have information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
