Police are on the hunt for the woman who sliced the face, hands and neck of her ex-husband's girlfriend at the south county Chuck E. Cheese.
The suspect, a 32-year-old woman, came to the Chuck E. Cheese at South County Center threatening to cut the tires of her former husband's car around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday night. That's when the ex-husband's new squeeze, who is eight years younger than his ex-wife, decided to get involved.
The girlfriend approached the ex-wife, who used a knife to cut her in the hands, neck and face. The injuries were not life-threatening, according to St. Louis County Police.

The ex-wife fled before officers arrived, and police are still searching for her.
It's not the first time adults have gotten in trouble for taking their beef to Mr. Cheese's doorstep. In 2010, a brawl broke out at the same Chuck E. Cheese. And in 2009, a woman sued the franchise claiming that an employee groped her breasts while dressed like Chuck E. Cheese.
Here's the incident report from police:
At approximately 7:15 p.m. on January 13, 2015, officers from the St. Louis County Police Department South County Precinct responded to the Chuck E Cheese for a disturbance. The female suspect, 32 years old, was threatening to cut tires of a vehicle that belonged to an ex-husband. The ex-husband was at the restaurant with a current girlfriend. The female victim, 24 years old and current girlfriend of the suspect's ex-husband, approached the suspect in which a confrontation ensued. The victim suffered non life threatening injuries with cuts to the hands, face, and neck. The suspect left the scene prior to officers' arrival. Police know who the suspect is, and are searching for the suspect.
