Saugus Police report officers who responded to a report of a stolen U-Haul vehicle this morning found themselves under attack by a man with a knife this morning.
Three officers were stabbed; Steven Sossong, 43, of Saugus was arrested.
Police say that when officers knocked on Sossong's Tuttle Street door around 7:20 a.m., he refused to come out.
Police made entry into the home following an initial investigation, and an altercation ensued with SOSSONG.
Three Saugus Police Officers were stabbed by an sharp weapon upon entry, all sustaining what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.
The three were taken to a local hospital for treatment, along with a fourth officer taken for observation.
Sossong was charged with four counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and four counts of assault and battery on a police officer, police say.
