Man attacks N.Y. officer with knife

The Associated Press

Rochester, N.Y. — A 29-year-old man faces charges after he allegedly stabbed a Rochester police officer whose protective vest kept him from suffering more serious injuries.

Police department officials say the 26-year-old officer was attacked by John Sterling after responding to a call Thursday night. Authorities say Sterling stabbed the officer several times in the torso with a kitchen knife but the bulletproof vest stopped the thrusts.
