Investigators with the Columbia Police Department are looking for a homeless woman wanted for allegedly stabbing another homeless woman who is pregnant, officials say.

Remonoter Pete, a.k.a. “Re-Re,” is wanted for outstanding attempted murder, said Columbia spokeswoman officer Jennifer Timmons in a statement. Pete, 27, is accused of stabbing the victim shortly after 9 p.m. Aug. 9, in the 2000 block of Main Street.

The two are thought to have been fighting over a fast food gift card, Timmons said. The fight became physical and Pete allegedly used a knife to stab the victim in the heart and lung. The woman was taken to a local hospital where she was listed Sunday as critically stable.

Both Pete and the victim do not have permanent addresses, Timmons said. Pete is considered armed and dangerous, she said.
