Tacoma officer stabbed in face while checking on dead body

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A Tacoma police officer has been treated at a hospital after being stabbed in the face while responding to a request to check on a possible dead body. Officers were called to an apartment complex where a mother feared her son was dead. Police say a man came out of a nearby apartment and stabbed one of the officers in the cheek. The officer is expected to be OK and a suspect has been arrested. Officers did find the body of a man in his 30s but investigators don’t believe his death is connected to the stabbing.
