LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The victim of a hit-and-run crash followed the suspect to his home, where an arresting officer was stabbed in the hand while trying to subdue the man, according to Louisville Metro Police.

Investigators said Anthony Ray Crain, 53, was behind the wheel of a car that hit another vehicle on the exit ramp from southbound Interstate 65 to Fern Valley Road and then kept going. The alleged incident happened around 4:00 Sunday morning.

The victim told police he followed Crain to an apartment complex at 743 McCawley Road where Crain threatened him with a knife, saying, "Don't mess with me. I will kill you." Crain then told the man, "I'm going up to my apartment to get my gun and kill you," according to the victim. Crain went inside the apartment, and the victim called police.

Officers who arrived on the scene said Crain came to his door with a black-handled object in his hand and a clenched fist, threatening them. According to an arrest report, one officer grabbed Crain by the arm, but he pulled away. Crain was forced onto his couch and then opened a knife he was holding and stabbed an officer in the hand, police said.

A stun gun was used in an attempt to subdue Crain, but he continued to resist arrest, the report states. Officers eventually took Crain into custody but said he repeatedly threatened to kill them. Police said Crain was extremely intoxicated.

Crain is charged with first degree assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, terroristic threatening and leaving the scene of an accident.
