PHOENIX (CBS5) - A gunman remains on the loose after robbing prescription drugs from a Phoenix man returning home on his motorized wheelchair.

When the robber confronted him and his 5-year-old daughter as they were pulling into their driveway, the suspect held his gun to the man's head and then pointed it at the young girl, threatening to shoot her if his demands were not met, Phoenix Police Officer James Holmes said.

The couple had just visited a Walgreens store in the area of 3300 E. Cambridge Avenue when the incident occurred on Nov. 21 at around 1 p.m.

The suspect grabbed the victim's bag of prescription drugs and fled in what may have been a 2000 Ford Taurus, possibly white or silver, with faded/oxidized paint, Holmes said. The getaway car was driven by a man between the ages of 25 to 30.

More than seven weeks have passed and police detectives said they need the public's help in solving the crime. A reward of up to $1,000 is available for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO. People can also call Silent Witness detectives toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Your call will remain anonymous.
