A Simi Valley man armed with a knife was Tasered by police officers after he refused to drop the weapon.

Police responded to the 1700 block of Royal Avenue around 1:07 p.m. Saturday following a report that a male subject was walking down the roadway carrying a knife.

As officers arrived, they found Eric Logue walking eastbound holding a kitchen knife in his right hand. The 34-year-old suspect was bleeding from self-inflicted wounds to his left wrist.

Logue refused to obey commands made by officers to drop the knife. A Taser was then used to subdue the suspect.

He was treated at Simi Valley Hospital and later booked at the East Valley Sheriff's station for resisting arrest.

No officers were reportedly injured during the incident.
