UPPER DARBY POLICE were searching Wednesday for a 21-year-old woman who allegedly attacked her mother while she was bathing by biting her on the hand and both legs.
Part of the mother's thumb is missing, and she was in serious condition at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
"It's domestic cannibalism," said police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. "We never found the tip of the finger. We don't know whether she ate it or swallowed it. Totally out of control. We don't know if she was high on drugs or what."
Kirstie L. Foley, 21, who lives in an apartment with her mother on Marshall Road near Long Lane, is wanted for aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment.
