An investigation into a stolen U-Haul truck turned bloody Thursday morning when a "combative" suspect stabbed three police officers attempting to gain entry into his Saugus home. All three cops are recovering from non-life threatening knife wounds at Massachusetts General Hospital, but Saugus Assistant Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti said the violent morning shocked the force. "They're just beginning to comprehend what occurred," an emotional Giorgetti told the press Thursday. Saugus Police responded to a report of a rental truck reported stolen by 43-year-old Saugus resident Steven Sossong, who had an outstanding warrant for driving with an expired vehicle registration. According to police, four officers visited Sossong's house on Tuttle Street around 7:45 a.m.
