A Glendale police officer and a man are injured after the man pulled out a large knife, held it to himself and the officer used a Taser on him, causing him to fall on the knife. Officers responded to reports of a “suspicious” fire. When officers arrived at the scene, they spoke with a man who was engaging in “odd” behavior. After returning to the officer’s side, the man pulled out a knife. As soon as the officer saw the knife, he tried to grab it from him. He was then tased, fell to the ground and was stabbed in the neck by his own knife. The man was eventually treated for his injuries and transported to a local hospital despite not initially allowing paramedics to treat his injuries.
