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.

Le was shot during the incident and remains hospitalized at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. He is to be arraigned this week.

Police say the trooper is recovering and is in “good spirits.”
