(Scroll down for video) A police officer is in the hospital after he was stabbed by a sex offender.

Police in Oklahoma, went to a home to serve a warrant to a non-complying sex offender.

However, according to suspect’s mother, Phillip Trammel has made several threats about law-enforcement as he did not want to go back to jail, Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane said.

When officers arrived at the home, the convicted sex offender hid under a pile of clothes in a bedroom.

Body cameras showed that when officers searched the room, Trammel jumped out from under the clothes and lunged at them.

Deputy Christian Goode deployed his Taser, but it did not fire.

That is when the suspect stabbed Deputy Goode twice with a four-inch blade. In order to stop the attack, Goode fired his weapon several times, killing Trammell.

Deputy Goode was taken to a hospital, where he is recovering.
