Milwaukee Police are investigating the stabbing of a Department of Public Works veteran parking enforcement officer early Tuesday morning.

While issuing parking citations, the 60-year-old man was confronted by two individuals who later began punching and kicking him multiple times. He was then stabbed by one of the suspects.

The parking enforcement officer then freed himself and drove to the District Four police station to get help. He was later taken to Froedtert Hospital.

Police say he is in stable condition and the investigation is ongoing.

"The attack on this worker was unacceptable and ANY assault of ANY city worker cannot and will not be tolerated," Alderman Cavalier Johnson. "City workers are performing essential duties daily across Milwaukee, and they deserve our respect and kind courtesy."
