CAMDEN — A veteran police officer was stabbed in the chest trying to break up a fight on a city street corner, according to a report by the Gloucester County Times.

The officer, a 14-year veteran of the force, was in critical but stable condition Sunday at Cooper University Hospital. A spokesman for Camden Count Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk did not disclose the officer’s name, citing consideration for his family.

Two Camden men are charged in connection with the altercation. One is charged with attempted murder and weapons offenses. The other is charged with obstructing justice and resisting arrest. Both were being held Sunday in the Camden County Jail.

The Camden officer, who was in full uniform and wearing a reflective traffic vest, tried to intervene in the fight. The officer grabbed one of the men from behind. It is alleged that the man spun around and stabbed the officer in the left side of the chest.

The officer was assigned to work a traffic post at Broadway and Mickle Boulevard as the crowd left a concert at the Susquehanna Center Saturday night
