A suspect in a stabbing set fire to his clothes, then began tossing furniture at police cars out the window of his second-floor Clifton apartment Thursday before a Passaic County Sheriff's SWAT team stormed in and seized him, authorities said.
Police tried negotiating with the combative 32-year-old tenant after they determined the fire was extinguished in the Lexington Avenue apartment above a city business, Detective Lt.Robert Bracken said.
But he only "became more angry and began to toss chairs and other hard objects from the second-floor window, damaging patrol cars that were parked outside," Bracken said.
It was while they were trying to talk him out that police realized he was wanted on charges of aggravated assault and weapons possession for a stabbing a few weeks ago on Highland Avenue, the lieutenant said.
Two hours passed before members of the Passaic County Sheriff's SWAT Team tossed in a flash-bang grenade and rushed the apartment.
One of them sustained an arm injury during a struggle and was taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center for treatment, Bracken said.
The suspect was also taken to St. Joe's, where he was being evaluated and treated. Given the situation, his identity wasn't publicly disclosed.

Ukraine mum arms herself with massive sniper rifle & sets up sentry post in kitchen warning Putin ‘I’ll start shooting’
A MUM is pictured wielding a huge sniper rifle in her Ukraine flat as she prepares for a Russian invasion - warning Putin: "I'll start shooting".
Mariana Zhaglo, a 52-year-old marketing researcher, has said she is willing to do whatever it takes to defend her country.3Mariana Zhaglo, pictured with her Zbroyar Z-15 sniper rifle, has vowed to defend her homeCredit: Anthony Loyd - The Times
The mother-of-three has set up a sentry post in her kitchen, arming herself with a massive Zbroyar Z-15 rifle, helmet and camouflage gear as she joins millions of civilians preparing for the imminent Russian invasion.
Posing in her Kiev apartment, she told The Times: "As a mother I do not want my children to inherit Ukraine's problems, or have these threats passed on to them.
"It is better that I deal with this now.
"If it comes to it then we will fight for Kiev; we will fight to protect our city. If there is a need for the shooting to start, then I'll start shooting."
She explained that her weapon is a hunting rifle - but that she has no intentions of hunting dear.
"I have never hunted in my life. I bought this carbine after listening to some soldiers discussing the best rifle to get," Mariana added.
And the rifle wasn't a one-off purchase for Mariana.
In addition to splashing £950 on the weapon, she also went to a two-week sniper course and had several attachments fitted - including a bipod, a telescopic sight and a silencer - to ensure she could be as lethal as possible.Most read in The US SunLEGEND DEAD Meat Loaf 'dies of covid' age 74 with wife by his side as tributes pour inCASH CLAIM Automatic $1,400 payments can be claimed TODAY after $660 monthly boost deadlineMOVING ON Inside 1,000-LB Sisters' Amy's new $37K Kentucky home as Tammy is 'jealous'SUDDEN IMPACT SpaceX rocket is about to CRASH into the Moon after '7 years of chaos'
Mariana also spent another £830 on the other military garb which included a bulletproof vest, ammo and boots as well as stocking up on canned goods in case there is a siege in Kiev.
She is just one of thousands of civilians - from architects to students - who recently have joined the nation's voluntary section of the army, the Territorial Defence Forces, amid rising tensions on the Russian border.
In the event of a potential invasion by Russia, these volunteers will be part of the country's civil resistance that will carry on the fight against Russian soldiers if Ukraine's 255,000-strong regular army is overwhelmed.
The region has been on a knife-edge since the end of last year when Moscow moved as many as 100,000 troops, as well as tanks and missiles, close to its border with Ukraine.
But tensions have ramped up in recent days after a surge in equipment and troop movements, among them military police, from the extreme east of Russia.
Mariana told The Times that many Ukrainians have learned to live with the threat of a potential invasion ever since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, and said it is not unusual for Russia to intermittently increase troop deployments near the border.
But she remained resolute in her intention to remain in the capital and fight in the event of an invasion.
"Neither my husband nor I have any living relatives elsewhere, we have nowhere else to go. This is our home. We will fight for it."3Volunteers in Ukraine are being trained up in case as tensions arise between the country and RussiaCredit: Reuters 3Civilians are prepared to battle it out to defend their countriesCredit: Reuters Boris Johnson warns Putin invading Ukraine would spark worst bloodshed since WW2 and many Russians ‘won’t come home’
