CINCINNATI -- Police are searching for a man accused of stabbing a 17-year-old three times on a Metro bus Tuesday afternoon.

Anthony Booker, 19, was involved in an argument with the victim before he stabbed the 17-year-old, including once in the neck, Sgt. Eric Franz said.

The stabbing occurred at about 5:10 p.m. on a Metro bus on Madison Road near Withrow High School, according to Franz. Police don't believe the incident had anything to do with the school.

The victim was driven to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, Franz said.
