Investigators are looking for a second woman in connection with a violent finger-biting assault in the parking lot of the Cherry Hill Mall.

The 2nd woman was captured by a surveillance camera walking into Nordstrom's with the prime suspect right after Saturday's attack.

Tonya Knight-Joseph's finger was bitten and nearly severed during a dispute over a parking space, police say.

Knight-Joseph also suffered scratches to her face. She was released from Cooper University Hospital Monday afternoon.

Doctors say it will be a week before they know if Knight-Joseph's finger will have to be amputated.

The suspect who Knight-Joseph says bit her is described as a black female in her mid-30s with a heavy set build and "bushy" hair.

The 2nd woman being sought by police is described as a thin black female who was wearing a light colored shirt, dark jacket and sunglasses.

Anyone with information about the case or either suspect is asked to call the Cherry Hill Police Department at (856) 488-7828.
