CAMDEN, N.J.(AP) - Authorities say a Camden police officer is in critical condition but stable condition at Cooper University Hospital two days after he was stabbed following a concert.
The Camden County Prosecutor's Office released the officer's name on Monday. He is Richard Harris, a 14-year veteran of the city's police department.
The prosecutor's office says he was stabbed Saturday night while breaking up a fight outside the Susquehanna Center. Harris was working a traffic detail after a country music concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of Philadelphia radio station WXTU.
One man has been charged with attempted murder and weapons offenses. A second is charged with resisting arrest and obstructing justice.
