Police say a man bit two officers as they tried to apprehend him overnight in Philadelphia's Harrowgate section.
Authorities said a male and a female officer approached the 32-year-old man, who appeared to be trying to break into a car, about 1:30 a.m. on the 1200 block of Atlantic Street.
A struggle ensued and the man bit both officers in their arms and hands, drawing blood, Chief Inspector Scott Small told reporters.
The officers were taken to Aria Health-Frankford Campus in stable condition.
Any time someone suffers a human bite, Small said, "it is really potentially very dangerous" and the wound needs to be thoroughly cleaned.
