Pennsylvania Officer Stabbed After Courtesy Transport

September 07, 2015  | 

A Delaware County, Pa., police officer was recovering Sunday morning after police say a man stabbed him during a scuffle outside a South Philadelphia hotel.

The Tinicum Township officer was doing a good deed when things went awry, police said: He was giving the suspect a courtesy transport from a Motel 6 in Tinicum to the nearby Holiday Inn Philadelphia Stadium at 10th Street and Packer Avenue in South Philadelphia.

When the officer and the suspect, who were both in the officer's cruiser, arrived at the hotel about 8:20 p.m., a scuffle between them broke out, police said.

The fight spilled out of the cruiser, and ended when the suspect stabbed the officer in the shoulder and fled the scene. Philadelphia Police responded and took the wounded officer to Presbyterian Medical Center, where he was in stable condition, NBC 10 reports.
