Then work with South Lake Tahoe Police and Douglas County Sheriff (Nevada) in apprehending the suspect who also shot a member of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Great work all.

The Full OPOA Statement:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 29, 2019

Alameda District Attorney Files Multiple Felony Charges against a Suspect with History of Violence Who Stabbed an Oakland Police Officer.

OAKLAND – On April 25th after finishing his shift, and while walking to his car, an Oakland Police Officer was accosted and stabbed multiple times by an armed suspect. Our officer sustained serious wounds but thankfully due to the quick actions of responding Oakland Police Officers, who drove their injured colleague to Highland Hospital, and with the care and expertise of Highland’s medical staff, our brave member is on the road to recovery.

Thank you to the Oakland Police Officers assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division and the Alameda County District Attorney because today District Attorney Nancy O’Malley acknowledged the seriousness of the attack by charging the suspect with a multitude of felony crimes. The charges include:

 Attempted Murder of a Police Officer – 187(a)/664 PC.
 Using a Deadly Weapon in the Commission of a Crime – 12022(b)(1) PC.
 Inflicting Great Bodily Injury – 12022.7(a) PC.
 Committing a Crime While on Felony Probation – 1203(k) PC.
 Vandalism (two counts) – 594(a) PC.

This violent suspect was no stranger to the criminal justice system and the fact that the suspect was roaming the street of Oakland is a cause for concern for both Oakland Police Officers and our residents.

After learning that the suspect was charged, Oakland Police Officers’ Association President Barry Donelan said “Our injured officer showed great courage in the face of a potentially deadly attack. Our responding officers and investigating officers demonstrated their professionalism and diligence in aiding their colleague, arresting the suspect, and ultimately presenting the case to the District Attorney for charging. I am satisfied that the District Attorney saw this assault for what it was, a cowardly unprovoked attack that severely injured a Police Officer. Assaulting Police Officers cannot be tolerated in civil society.”

Donelan continued, “This attack on an Oakland Police Officer marks a troubling and unacceptable national trend of increased attacks on Police Officers. Men and women join the law enforcement vocation to protect and serve, not to be targets for attack. The serious charges filed in this case will hopefully not only ensure justice is served but send a clear message to any would be attacker that assaulting Police Officers will not be tolerated and has harsh consequences. We wish our injured member a speedy recovery.”
