WAUKON, Iowa (AP) — A police officer is recovering after being stabbed with a screwdriver while trying to break up an assault in northeast Iowa.

The Allamakee County Sheriff's office says Waukon Police Officer Chad Dugan was hurt late Saturday while responding to an assault report.

Authorities say a 60-year-old man stabbed Dugan with a screwdriver when Dugan entered the home.

After a struggle, the 60-year-old was arrested. He is facing two charges of assaulting an officer, one charge of domestic assault and one charge of interfering with police.

Dugan was treated at a local hospital and released.
