DEVELOPING STORY: Two police officers were stabbed and a third injured in a wild attack near the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square.

The NYPD says a man armed with a machete attacked the officers. The attacker was shot.

“No backpacks or umbrellas in Times Square. They forgot to mention machetes,” a police source told The New York Post.

Law enforcement sources tell the New York Post the violence broke out at about 9:28 p.m. on Dec. 31 at the corner of 52nd Street and 8th Avenue.

Meanwhile, another cop was hit by a police car when he was trying to move the barricades on 52nd and Broadway to let responding officers get to the machete-wielding man, witnesses said.

The injured officers were rushed to Bellevue Hospital, while the suspect — apparently shot in an exchange with police — was also hospitalized. Police sources said the officers are in stable condition; the suspect’s condition is unknown at this time.
