A 50-year-old woman passenger was in custody Wednesday after she allegedly repeatedly slashed the face of the woman driving the vehicle in Riverside.
There was no immediate word of a motive for the bloody attack.
California Highway Patrol officers Tuesday reported to the eastbound Riverside (91) Freeway, west of Central Avenue, and found the victim who had been stabbed in the face and hand by a passenger in her vehicle, according to Officer Juan Quintero.
A preliminary investigation identified the attack passenger as Kimberly A. Cain, who fled the scene on foot after allegedly stabbing the woman, Quintero said. Cain was found hiding near the highway and was arrested by CHP officers.
Cain was booked for assault with a deadly weapon, Quintero said. The victim was treated at the scene by the Riverside Fire Department and later taken to a hospital. Her condition was unknown.
Anyone with information about the stabbing can call the CHP Accident Investigation Unit at 951-637-8000.
