A teenager has been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent after a police officer was stabbed in the back in Portsmouth.
Hampshire Constabulary said Michael Enzanga, 19, had also been charged with possession of a bladed article in a public place, after the officer was attacked near a children's playground in a drugs-related incident on Thursday.
The officer, 56, was airlifted from the scene in Stamshaw Park, Portsmouth, and taken to hospital.
He remains in hospital in a stable condition.
Enzanga, who police said was from London but of no fixed abode, will appear at Portsmouth Magistrates Court on Saturday.
