      WASHINGTON (AP/ABC7) - Police are searching for a woman who slashed another woman on a Metrobus.

      Metro officials say the two women got into a verbal altercation on a bus Saturday morning in southeast Washington. The incident escalated into a physical fight, and one woman slashed the other on the forehead.

      The suspect fled on foot, and the victim was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

      Metro says it was a U8 bus in the 4600 block of Benning Road SE.

      Metro says the bus is being taken out of circulation so that police can review surveillance video.
