A man in his forties suffering from mental problems stabbed a Public Security Officer at 7.30 am this morning. Due to the size of the attacker the policeman struggled to subdue his assailant and as a result was stabbed in the leg.
On receiving the alert several PSP patrols, the Portuguese Red Cross and the Volunteer Firefighters attended the scene. The policeman, who has not been named, was quickly taken to hospital as was his attacker, who is now under arrest.
