As the social worker came to the door on East 18th Street, near Albemarle Road, in Flatbush-Ditmas Park about 11:10 a.m., the 44-year-old emotionally disturbed woman lunged at the officers, police said. The lieutenant, who has been with the department for more than 15 years, was stabbed on his left forearm with a kitchen knife. He was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, police said. The suspect was taken into custody and brought to Maimonides Medical Center. By Alison Fox email@example.com @AlisonFox Alison covers law enforcement and breaking news.
