MA Police Officer Stabbed by Knife-Wielding 11-Year Old

A Lowell, MA police officer suffered two stab wounds on Sunday after when he confronted a knife-wielding 11-year old.

The officer had observed a neighborhood disturbance and gotten out of his patrol vehicle to intervene when an 11-year old armed with a knife emerged from a house.

The 11-year old charged another child with the knife raised above his head and the officer stepped in to stop the assault.

As a result, the officer suffered two stab wounds. He was treated at a local hospital and released.

The 11-year old was taken into custody and now faces multiple charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
