Saugus, Massachusetts police officers arrived at 29 Tuttle Street following a report that a rented U-Haul truck had not been returned. They were stabbed by the suspect of the investigation.

Police have identified 43-year-old Steven Sossong as the individual who stabbed three officers and also injured a fourth cop, WCVB reported.

After police arrived on the scene at around 7:23 a.m. on Thursday, Sossong was reportedly “uncooperative” and refused to let the officers in to discuss the matter.

“Based on his level of cooperation, they made a forced entry where he refused to allow him to come in and speak to him regarding this vehicle. Subsequently, there was an altercation,” Assistant Chief Ron Giorgetti explained.

“Mr. Sossong had an edged weapon, a knife. Assaulted the officers on scene.”

The officers were transported to a nearby hospital and Sossong, who suffered minor injuries from the altercation, was taken to a different hospital to be evaluated.

Residents revealed that the U-Haul truck had been parked in the area for a while. Neighbors also believed that Sossong, who was a long-time resident, may be battling mental health issues.

Ernie Cotreau, Sossong’s neighbor, revealed he witnessed the injured officers being taken away from the scene. “I saw them take three officers in the ambulances, the last one I saw going in seemed dazed,” he said.

The fourth officer, who sustained injuries from the altercation, was reportedly transported to the hospital as a precaution. All of the officers are expected to survive.

Sossong is scheduled for arraignment at some point on Thursday. Charges of four counts each of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault, and battery on a police officer are currently pending.

Depending on the results from the investigation, Giorgetti said Sossong could face additional charges.
