Three Massachusetts police officers have been rushed to hospital after they were stabbed whilst investigating a stolen vehicle on Thursday morning.
The incident happened in suburban Saugus, north of Boston, shortly before 7.30am.
According to authorities, four cops called around to the home of Steven Sossong, 43, to question him over the reported theft of a U-Haul van.
Sossong allegedly refused to step outside of his property, and then proceeded to stab three of the officers.
The cops were able to wrestle the knife out of Sossong’s hand as they called for back-up.
The three injured officers were rushed to Massachusetts General Hospital, and are expected to survive.
Saugus was taken into custody and has been charged with four counts each of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a police officer, according to Boston.com.
Neighbors told WCVB’s Matt Reed that they saw the cops being driven away via ambulance.
A swarm of police officers, medics and media are currently on the scene, with details still developing as to how the situation unfolded.
