Cherry Hill police seek 2nd woman in finger biting attack

New photos showing the alleged accomplice of a woman who almost completely bit off someone's finger over a parking spot at the Cherry Hill Mall have been released by police.

Two female attackers confronted a Philadelphia woman outside the Nordstrom's department store Saturday evening.

"The second female is described as a skinny black female, wearing a light colored shirt, a dark jacket, and sunglasses," Cherry Hill police said in a statement Monday. "The female entered Nordstrom’s with the assault suspect immediately after the incident occurred."

The bite victim, 42, reportedly is still worried she may lose the finger, which was surgically reattached after the attack left it hanging by a thread of skin.
