ARNOLD, Mo. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a woman who repeatedly stabbed a St. Louis area cab driver and then stole his cab in an apparent dispute over a fare.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the attack happened around 11 p.m. Tuesday near the town of Arnold.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Capt. Gary Higginbotham said the cab has been found, abandoned about 10 miles (16.09 kilometers) away, but the woman is still on the loose.

The driver’s injuries aren’t life-threatening. He was able to seek help at a nearby home after the attack.

Higginbotham said that early indications are that the woman might have been upset over the fare or didn’t have enough money to pay.
