Police: Restraint Shown After Suspect Attack

The Springfield  Police Department is crediting several officers with showing restraint  after they were reportedly attacked by a man with a knife. 

The police  department says Jose Dejesus was arrested after officers responded to a  report of a suspicious vehicle on Fountain Street early Thursday  morning.

 A Taser was reportedly used on Dejesus, but it did not have the  desired impact due to several layers of clothing. 

Officers were able to  get Dejesus out of the car and secure the knife after they say he had  grabbed it and motioned towards them with the weapon.
