DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Dayton Police Department provided an update after an officer was stabbed while responding to a call.

The Dayton Police Department held a press conference Friday at 2 p.m. regarding an officer being stabbed on Thursday afternoon.

Officers from DPD were dispatched out to the scene of a call for a reported mental health issue regarding the caller’s adult son around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday on the 1500 block of Bancroft Street in Dayton.

Just before 3 p.m., police announced over the radio that an officer inside the home had been stabbed. Major Hall with DPD said during the press conference that additional police arrived at the scene and a suspect, 29-year-old Tyler Patrick, was quickly apprehended.

Hall says the weapon used to stab the officer was a folding pocketknife. Patrick was known to authorities from previous threats of violence.

The suspect was interviewed and taken to the hospital after suffering minor injuries during the arrest. Patrick was then taken and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on charges of felonious assault on a police officer.

Hall identified the officer which got stabbed as Ofc. George Kloos, a 10-year veteran of the force. Other officers on the scene include Ofc. James West, a recent graduate of the police academy and Kloos’ trainee and Ofc. Eric Hamby.

“These officers were doing a phenomenal job at de-escalation,” Hall says.

Dayton Police released the following statement on Thursday:

The officer was stabbed in the neck and we are fortunate a major artery was not struck. The officer has been treated and released and will be off while recuperating from his injuries. The suspect was immediately taken into custody and has been booked into the Montgomery County Jail with several felony charges pending.
