The fight at the Cherry¬†Hill Mall involved three women and occurred around 4:30 p.m. Saturday outside Nordstrom’s. Authorities say it began as a verbal argument before it turned physical.

Biting victim Tonya Knight-Joseph tells 6 ABC she pulled into a spot near Bahama Breeze after circling the parking lot. “As soon as I got out of the car she started calling me all types of B-words,” recalled Knight who says two other women accused her of taking their spot.

“All of a sudden, I must have been pushing the initial attacker away and she bit down on my finger and proceeded to chomp. By the time I looked at it, it was hanging off by a little piece of skin. I immediately picked up my cell, called 911 and followed her into the Nordstrom’s,” said Knight-Joseph.

The biting suspect is described as a heavy-set black female in her mid-thirties with “bushy” hair possibly driving an older model, dark colored¬† Audi sedan. She could face aggravated assault charges.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Cherry Hill Police at (856) 488-7828.
