Two Toronto police officers suffered minor injuries during a violent struggle with a knife-wielding man in East York on Tuesday.

Police headed to the area of Dawes Road and Grower Street, near Victoria Park Avenue, around 5 p.m. after receiving a call about a man attacking a woman. The woman wasn’t seriously injured.

The suspect fled, but police managed to track him down during a search of the area.

That’s when things took a violent turn.

Police say the suspect tried to stab the arresting officers, nicking one of them in the neck.

Both officers were treated by paramedics for minor injuries and the suspect was taken into custody.
