A Forest Grove police officer suffered a knife wound in a hand as he wrestled to control a suicidal man.
Police say an acquaintance of the man called officers Sunday morning to a motel. When they arrived they found the man with the knife bleeding. He yelled at officers to shoot him.
When he refused to drop the knife, police used a Taser. He fell to the ground but struggled with officers, cutting one on the hand.
The officer was treated at a hospital. The suicidal man was flown to a hospital with injuries described as life-threatening.
