A man who allegedly stabbed a New York Police Department (NYPD) officer on Wednesday reportedly yelled "Allahu Akbar" as he attacked the victim.

According to video released by the NYPD, Dzenan Camovic, 20, is seen rounding the corner at Flatbush Ave. and Church Ave. on Wednesday night at 11:45 p.m. before he sticks the knife into the officer's neck.

Another officer rushes to the aid of the victim, Officer Yayonfrant Jean Pierre, and asks him if he has been stabbed before reporting the incident.

Officers who responded to the scene later shot Camovic, believed to be a Serbian immigrant, eight times. Two other officers were reportedly shot as well, according to the New York Daily News.

Pierre is currently recovering at home from his injuries. Camovic was charged with attempted murder and is recovering in the hospital.
