NOBLE, Okla. (AP) - Cleveland County Sheriff Joe Lester says a deputy is recovering after being stabbed in the face while investigating a report of domestic abuse in Noble.

Lester said Tuesday that the deputy was stabbed below the right eye with a sharp piece of plastic. The deputy’s name was not released.

Lester says deputies had responded to the domestic abuse report Sunday and were speaking to the suspect and the suspect’s wife when the man went into a closet and refused to open the door. Lester says when deputies were able to open the door, the man charged the officers and stabbed the deputy.

The deputy was treated and released at a local hospital while the man was arrested for assault and battery on a police officer and domestic assault and battery.
