PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix police said they are looking for a Phoenix woman and her toddler who disappeared Saturday night following an aggravated assault incident.

The alleged victims are identified as 19-year-old Jazmine and her daughter, Trina.

No last names were provided.

"I'm concerned for her safety. I'm concerned for her health. I'm concerned for her life and my niece's life,"said an emotional Jacqueline Stevens.

She tells CBS5 her niece Jazmine and great-niece Trina came to live with her three weeks ago.

"We were supposed to, you know, get her help and get her on her feet and try to get her away from him," Steven said referring to Jazmine's estranged boyfriend, 29-year-old Juan Francisco Alvarado-Meza.

Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said Alvarado-Meza and another man forced their way into Steven's apartment, near 36th and Van Buren streets, around 8:00 Saturday night.

"He's a violent, violent person," Stevens said about Alvarado-Meza.

She said Alvarado-Meza brutally beat her male friend who tried to stop the men from taking Jazmine and Trina.

The friend was knocked unconscious.

When he awoke, Jazmine and Trina were gone.

Police said they do not know if they left voluntarily, but Stevens said she has no doubt Jazmine and Trina were taken against their will.

Martos said they're seeking Alvarado-Meza on a charge of aggravated assault.

He's described as a Hispanic man with a large tattoo on his upper chest and shoulder.

Jazmine was last seen wearing a black tank top and black basketball shorts with a white stripe.

Trina was wearing a pink T-shirt and pink camouflage pants.

Police have not identified the second suspect.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6141.

Those wishing to remain anonymous may call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or for Spanish 480-TESTIGO.
