Two police officers stabbed in Chattooga County

Authorities say two police officers have recovered after both were stabbed during a confrontation with a man in Northwest Georgia.

Chattooga County sheriff's officials say the officers were taken to area hospitals Sunday morning, treated and released the same day.

The Rome News-Tribune reported the Chattooga County officers had responded to a domestic disturbance at an apartment complex in Summerville when they were wounded.

Authorities say a 20-year-old Rome man was taken into custody and faces several charges, including three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.
