FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A police officer who was stabbed at a Michigan airport in an alleged act of terrorism says he fought the urge to lie down as he bled from the neck because he feared he might not get up.
Lt. Jeff Neville recalled the attack during testimony Friday in the trial of Amor Ftouhi (ah-MOOR’ fuh-TOO’-ee), who is charged with terrorism and other crimes at the Flint airport.
Ftouhi is a Tunisian who was living in Montreal. He drove into the U.S. at Champlain, New York, and traveled to Flint in June 2017. The government says his plan was to stab Neville, get the cop’s gun and shoot others.
Neville says he lost feeling in his face because of the stabbing. He says the attack is “something … you never forget.”
