Search on for woman accused of nearly biting off another woman's finger over mall parking spot

The search is on for a woman suspected of biting another woman's finger amid a dispute over a parking spot at a southern New Jersey mall.

Police are still trying to identify the woman who bit Tonya Knight-Joseph's finger outside the Cherry Hill Mall on Saturday.

The 42-year-old Philadelphia resident says she was arguing with two women who accused her of stealing their parking space when one attacked her.

Knight-Joseph says the attacker was cursing, yelling, getting in her face and hitting her. Then, the woman bit her finger, nearly severing it. That was "game over," in Knight-Joseph's words.

She says hospital workers who took X-rays couldn't believe the bite was caused by a human.

Police have released an image of the suspect. They say she could face aggravated assault charges.
