CENTER CITY -- Police have arrested a 47-year-old woman for allegedly throwing coffee on a woman, and then punching her outside a Starbucks in Center City, Philadelphia.

The incident happened on April 25 at the Starbucks at 1600 Arch Street.

Montgomery was involved in an altercation with a 54-year-old woman inside the coffee shop.

Philadelphia police are searching for a woman who viciously attacked another woman outside a Starbucks in Center City Monday morning.

She then grabbed the victim by the hair, and pulled her to the ground, where she continued to punch her, police say.

A witness walking by the scene, separated the two women.
