Officials said that a woman was stabbed to death by another woman in a fight, possibly over a parking space in Philadelphia, it was reported.

According to The Associated Press, the incident took place at around 9:30 p.m. on June 11.

The women were arguing over the space when one stabbed the other twice in the chest.

The victim, 27, died a short while later, AP reported.

The suspect fled the scene of the attack, but she was apprehended several blocks away, the report said.

According to NBC Philadelphia, the victim was identified as Teniesha Iseley.

“When police arrived on location they found a 27-year-old female laying on the highway, she was suffering from two stab wounds to her chest,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told the news outlet.

She was taken to Einstein Medical Center, where she died about 45 minutes later, officials said.

“We have been told the argument may have been over a parking spot,” Small said.

Police didn’t elaborate on what charges the suspect, who was not named, will face.

Witnesses told NBC Philadelphia and CBS Philadelphia that the suspect was wearing pink shorts and had red braids.

“About three blocks away, they saw a female fitting that description,” Small told CBS. “As soon as the female saw the police pulling up, the marked police unit, she tried to flee on foot but police officers immediately grabbed her, held onto her.”

According to the CBS affiliate, the two women may have been involved in a larger dispute.

“It was like a fight that was happening with a bunch of girls yelling at each other,” neighbor Rachel Greene told the news outlet.

When the stabbing took place, “It was just like bloody murder, like a scream. You knew something happened,” Greene said.

Two groups then scattered after the stabbing, the report said.

“It seemed like there was some tension brewing from maybe some cross-neighborhood things or you know, it was personal that’s what it seemed like. It seemed like whoever it was, knew each other,” Greene told CBS.

The stabbing is still under investigation.

It took place on the 5300 block of Lena Street in the Germantown neighborhood.

Other details about the case are not clear.
