A man who allegedly bit and attacked two police officers was tasered inside his residence Wednesday morning in the Little Village neighborhood on the West Side.

At 1:54 a.m., the 29-year-old threatened to stab his roommates — a 48-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man — with a knife while they were home in the 2200 block of South Sacramento, according to Chicago police. The roommates called 911.

Two responding officers were met with aggression from the 29-year-old, who was unarmed when they arrived, police said. He bit one of them in the hand and arm and beat up the second one in the leg and arm.

Back-up officers came to the residence and tasered the 29-year-old, police said.The injured officers were taken to a nearby hospital.

The 29-year-old was arrested and brought to St. Anthony Hospital for treatment, police said. Charges are pending.
