CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say three Florida police officers suffered stab wounds and cuts while trying to arrest a suspect with a knife.

The city of Clearwater said in a news release Sunday that all three officers were treated and released from a local hospital. Investigators say the officers were responding Saturday night to reports of a man beating a woman.

As they were trying to make the arrest, the man produced the knife and attacked the officers.

The suspect is identified as 36-year old Justin Shuford, who is charged with attempted homicide, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and domestic battery.

It wasn’t clear Sunday if Shuford had a lawyer to represent him.
