(INDIANAPOLIS) - Authorities say an Indianapolis police officer avoided serious injury when he was slashed in the face with a kitchen knife at a home.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says Officer Justin Callahan was treated at the scene after he was attacked Tuesday night.

Police say Callahan was taking a statement about a mentally unstable missing person when a 24-year-old man confronted the officer. Police say the man swung a kitchen knife at Callahan, who sustained a superficial injury to his face. The attacker then fled on foot.

Police are seeking the man Wednesday. The officer is a 6-year veteran of the police department and officials say he's been cleared to return to work.
