Police investigate at the scene in Brooklyn where an officer was stabbed.
The feds arrived early Thursday at the Flatbush apartment building of the man accused of stabbing the cop in the neck.
Agents could be seen at the address on East 22nd Street in an apparent search of evidence, near the scene of the violent confrontation on Church Avenue, where the melee unfolded at about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday.
Members of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force also arrived Thursday morning at the scene, while police took photos of “ACAB” graffiti — an acronym meaning “All Cops Are Bastards.
The graffiti may be related to an anti-police demonstration that took place this past weekend in the same neighborhood, a source said.
The suspect, a 20-year-old white man with no prior criminal history, approached an officer and stabbed him in the neck, a police source said. Several cops responded to the scene and one pulled his firearm, sources said.
The officer and the suspect then struggled for the weapon, which went off striking one officer in the hand and another in the arm.
A sergeant also responded to the scene and shot the suspect, police said. The police officers were rushed to Kings County Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
The officers were listed in stable condition Thursday morning.
The suspect, who has not been identified, was in critical condition.
