City cop stabbed in face is released from hospital

The Baltimore police officer who was stabbed early Saturday after responding to a domestic incident was released from the hospital Sunday, police said.

The officer was stabbed in the face and neck after being dispatched at 2:16 a.m. to The Varsity in Mid-Town Belvedere, police said. James Goss, 20, was wrestled to the ground and arrested at the scene. He faces 12 charges, including attempted murder and assault.

Goss is being held without bail and has no lawyer listed for him in online court records.

The officer was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in serious but stable condition. The department did not name the officer but said the 15-year veteran is married and has a young daughter.

Interim Commissioner Kevin Davis called the incident "a violent attack by a deranged knife-wielding predator."

"Nearly stabbing to death and disfiguring a police officer is not an acceptable outcome for police officers who respond to 911 calls for service and otherwise protect this great city," Davis said.
