VIDEO: 2 Belgian Police Officers Stabbed in Possible Terror-Related Incident

Two police officers were stabbed Wednesday by a knife-wielding man in Brussels in an incident classified as a "potential terrorist attack," prosecutors said, reports Fox News.

The man allegedly stabbed one officer in the neck and the other in the abdomen in the city's heavily-Muslim Schaerbeek neighborhood on Wednesday and then fled the scene. Both officers are expected to survive, a statement from prosecutors said.

The assailant was stopped by a second group of police. He's accused of breaking the nose of one officer, who then shot the man in the leg.

"The provisional results of the investigation indicate that it would be a potential terrorist attack," the statement said.

The alleged attacker was identified only as 43-year-old Hicham D., of Belgian nationality.
