BOSTON (AP) — Police have released the name of a man accused of stabbing a Massachusetts state trooper.

Massachusetts State police said Sunday that 18-year-old Nghia Le, of Manchester, New Hampshire, faces charges including armed assault with intent to murder. He is being held on $1 million bail.

Police say Le led police on a multi-state chase Friday after he was involved in a crash in New Hampshire and then carjacked a Toyota Camry.

The pursuit went into Vermont and ended in New Salem, Massachusetts, when Le crashed in an intersection. Police say Le then attacked a 47-year-old trooper.
