PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An official says a passenger on a Philadelphia city bus stabbed another man in the face with a screwdriver after an argument.

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority spokeswoman Carla Showell-Lee says the altercation occurred on a bus in the city's Germantown section at about 8 a.m. Wednesday. She says the victim was taken to a hospital, where he received four stitches to his lip. The other man fled and is being sought.

Showell-Lee said it's unclear whether the two knew each other or what the argument was about.
