Two Philadelphia police officers were reportedly hurt earlier this morning while chasing a suspect who attempted to escape during a medical procedure at Jefferson University Hospital, police said.
The incident occurred just after midnight this morning at the hospital, located at 10th and Sansom streets.
Dwayne Walker, 38, arrested Saturday for allegedly stabbing a 15-year-old male in the face, was released from his handcuffs to undergo a medical procedure as two 39th district police officers guarded him, police said.
"I'm not going to jail," Walker said, according to police, after the handcuffs were removed, and threatened to harm the officers.
Walker reportedly then reached for one officer's gun, was unable to grab it, and struggled with officers to get outside the hospital room, where he allegedly disrobed.
According to reports, Walker had a catheter as he struggled to escape.
Additional officers responded and cornered Walker, who did not respond to verbal commands.
One officer then Tasered Walker before placing him back in custody.
Walker is now charged with disarming a law enforcement officer, escape and resisting arrest for the incident.
Two officers had to be treated for head injuries sustained during Walker's attempted escape.
Walker was arrested Saturday and charged with aggravated assault for allegedly stabbing a 15-year-old male, who received stitches to his right eye, nose and forehead at Temple University Hospital. He was also stabbed in the left shoulder and hand, police said.
Walker sustained a severe laceration to his right hand during that incident, and was detained at Jefferson Hospital after being arrested.
