Cops are looking for a woman who tried to attack another woman with a knife at a fast food restaurant in the Bronx.

According to authorities, at 1:20 p.m. on Feb. 26, a 28-year-old woman got into a verbal dispute with another unknown woman at a Burger King located at 521 East 149th Street. At this time, it is not immediately clear what the argument was about.

Police say that the suspect then pulled out a butcher knife and swung it at the victim’s face, but missed. The suspect then fled the scene in an unknown direction — no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

On March 10, the NYPD released photos of the suspect taken from Burger King’s surveillance footage:
