An emotionally disturbed woman stabbed an NYPD officer trying to make an arrest in Brooklyn Monday morning, plunging a kitchen knife into the cop so violently that the blade broke off in his arm, officials say.

Lieutenant Wojciech Niebrzydowski was stabbed inside a building on East 18th Street at about 11:15 a.m., police said.

The officer had been called to the address by a social worker who was unable to get inside the woman's apartment. When Niebrzydowski went inside, authorities say, the woman grabbed a kitchen knife and started swinging wildly, striking the lieutenant in the arm.

Niebrzydowski, a 15-year NYPD veteran, was taken to Kings County Hospital to get stitches for his wound, police told NBC New York.
