Two female attackers confronted a Philadelphia woman outside the Cherry Hill Mall in New Jersey over a parking spot, police said, and one of the women nearly bit off the victim's finger.
The unidentified bite victim, 42, was in stable condition at a nearby hospital late Saturday evening after the fight that occurred shortly by 5 p.m., Cherry Hill police said.
"A portion of her finger was severely severed," police said in a release.
The biter and her cohort remained at large as of 5 p.m. today, police said.
The parking dispute began over a parking spot between two drivers in Aisle 18 outside Nordstrom's department store, police said, adding that they are seeking the public's help to identify the attackers.
The suspected biter is described as a black female in her mid-30s with a heavy-set build and thick, curly hair. She possibly operated an older model Audi sedan, dark in color.
Anyone with information or knows the suspect is asked to call Cherry Hill police at (856) 488-7828.
