Investigators said Meyer cut at least two people while walking down the sidewalk around 9:00 p.m. November 30th.

While the object she used in each attack looks like a knife, police said they actually don’t know for sure what it is.

The two victims were injured, but not seriously said police.

Residents in New Orleans are being asked to call a local hotline to report any tips about Meyer’s current whereabouts.  That number is 504-822-1111.
