The officers were responding to an emergency call from a supposed traffic accident in the Ruhr Valley city when the 21-year-old man rushed towards them and stabbed them.
While his female colleague was being attacked, the policeman was able to draw his pistol and shoot the assailant. All three were taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The authorities are now investigating the incident as attempted homicide after determining there had been no traffic accident at the scene of the crime.
